In an appearance on Shepard’s podcast, “Armchair Expert,” Schumer explained the constant threat of danger that women face. When Shepard compared the uncomfortable experience of a woman hitting on him to what ladies must feel at bars, Schumer had some thoughts. 

“Forget about being uncomfortable, women are mostly scared of violence,” she said. “One in 6 women reports being sexually assaulted, but really it’s 1 in 3 women. So we’re not even like, is this gonna happen? We’re like, when?” she went on. “We live in constant fear of violence. Just the feeling that we have all day, walking past a guy sitting alone on a bench. You’re just bracing ourselves. And I think that’s something men don’t really understand.”
