Wales, a country in the United Kingdom, is considering a radical intervention to protect women who walk the streets after dark.

First Minister Mark Drakeford, pictured left, says he is considering "temporary" local curfews for men to make the streets safer for women.

Green Party peer Baroness Jones said a 6 p.m. curfew for men would make women feel safer at night.

Drakeford is considering the measure to curb violent attacks against women on the streets.

He made the statement to BBC Breakfast on Friday after the body of 33-year-old marketing executive Sarah Everard was found in southeast England this week after she went missing.

Everard disappeared after she left a friend's house in Clapham on her way home to Brixton on March 3.

Her body was found in a wooded area in Kent in southeast England. A UK police officer was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and murder.

Authorities believe she was kidnapped by a police officer as she walked through Clapham Common.

20% of women report experiencing sexual assault (including attempts) since the age of 16 in England and Wales. Women are 94% more likely to be raped or attacked violently than men in the UK.
