Sarah’s story – ‘I feel so vulnerable that I no longer venture out alone’

I’ve become a wheelchair user in the last year. I live in a small town in a rural area. Each time I have gone out on my own I have had men (always men over a certain age) stop and stare at me openly! I feel so vulnerable that I no longer venture out alone. I used to run long distance, but now I feel that if I was attacked, followed, or any unwanted attention, I wouldn’t be able to get away or avoid it. It would be so easy for anyone to follow me home. I feel trapped.
