Gretel Lamont's recent letter in these pages "No men allowed out after dark"? What a Totally. Awesome. Idea. I have, quite genuinely, been racking my brain as to what we can realistically do to ensure women’s safety after dark.

Demanding safe passage at all hours, regardless of where we are, what we’re wearing or our blood-alcohol level is all very well but that is never going to happen, no matter how much “education” there is. There are always going to be random Evil Dudes out there.

So how do we shift responsibility for women’s safety from the victims to the perpetrators?

Adding her bit to the debate – and in response to the suggestion from yet another letter-writer that women shouldn’t walk alone at night – Ms Lamont came up with perhaps the most practical and efficient solution yet. A curfew on men. Genius.

There are a number of options. One is simply to ban all men from being on the streets or on public transport after, say, 9.30pm (10.30pm daylight saving). Which is effectively the restriction currently placed on women.

As females, once we’re out and about after dark, post-peak hour, we all know we’re in potential danger. So let’s shift the burden back on to the blokes – who certainly could be at large after curfew if they chose to but would know they’re at constant risk of being caught and spending the night in lock-up. (Which, in the scheme of things, still isn’t as bad as the risk of being raped and murdered.)

V8 racing driver James Courtney: Billionaire Bachelorette star Stu Laundy stole my wife

  V8 racing driver James Courtney: Billionaire Bachelorette star Stu Laundy stole my wife V8 racing driver James Courtney has been left in shock after his estranged wife flew to Honolulu to spend a romantic week with former Bachelorette Sophie Monk's ex Stu Laundy.But nothing prepared James Courtney for the discovery last week that his estranged wife had flown to Honolulu to spend a romantic week with hotel heir Stu Laundy – just a month after she "blindsided" him with a public announcement of their split.

So you're for a curfew for men but "please don't call me a feminazi." Great idea . Lets have communal curfew ‘hubs’ with beer and snacks and football etc, where men can stay out of harms way until bedtime.

Forcing all men under a curfew might be a great incentive for the “good guys” to find the “bad guys” and do some old fashioned attitude adjustment exercises on the guys who are wrecking it for everybody. It sounds you’re saying a male curfew would be a good idea .

But how about when I want to, say, go out and have dinner or a few drinks with male friends? Well, right now, at the conclusion of an evening’s festivities one or more of my male companions see me safely into a taxi. But under the new regime any men out after dark would have to be accompanied by a responsible female, and escorted in person to appropriate transport. It’s completely do-able. I can attest to it. I’ve been doing it for decades.

A piece entitled, “ A curfew for men ? What great idea ” has been doing the rounds on social media. Few are impressed, as you may imagine. Illustration: Cambist Films. Got something to add? Join the discussion and comment below.

Parents can set earlier curfews , as well, for when they feel their kids should be home. It can be dangerous to be out when it's dark, and a lot of people also lose discretion the later it is, so it's a great idea to keep teens safe.

Same rules for any chap who works nights.

And if you can’t afford a taxi or an Uber or arrange for a friend to collect you? Well, gentlemen, you’d have to take your chances, just as the ladies currently do. (See above re risk of arrest and imprisonment v risk of gruesome, terrifying death.)

I know it sounds untenable when the bare bones are laid out like this but I – and every other woman in Australia – can assure you that it’s irritating, sure, but you do get used to it. Eventually it’ll become second nature.

And I know now the idea is out there – and given the passion of our political leaders for law and order and keeping us all safe – draft legislation can’t be far away.
