“However you dress, wherever you go, yes means yes, no means no.”

A woman stood with her back to the camera in a dark alley."My male friends don't think like me, they're just not as afraid," said Freya Evans, a 21 year-old living in Woodhouse.

The women of Leeds speak out about how they don’t feel safe walking around alone during the darker months.

Since the death of the Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe, there has been more focus on how many women feel unsafe in Leeds.

The ‘assault alleyway’ in Headingley has also allowed many women to come forward about how they feel like their experiences are because of their gender.

Leeds City Council has also said they want to fight this issue and have introduced measures to make sure everyone in the city feels safe.
