“I saw this story today about the NYPD telling women what to wear to avoid sexual predators in the area. Just imagine if the women could carry concealed instead.”


The above comment came in an email with a link to a Wall Street Journal story A Thin Line on Skirts: “Note to women in the South Park Slope and surrounding Brooklyn: You might want to think twice before wearing shorts or skirts when you walk home alone at night. That’s the message some women say police officers are spreading as they step up patrols in the area in response to at least 10 unsolved sexual attacks that have taken place since March.”
