As has been pointed out, the crime statistics for this city are quite low, even lower than Toronto's.

If you're calculating risk, it's a very low one to be walking alone outside in Hamilton, with little or no difference where, when, or what gender one is.

Living in fear is no way to live, and implying a woman is stupid or reckless if they believe their freedom and employment is a much larger priority than a miniscule risk is incredibly insulting.

There's a few other scary mentalities that tend to correlate with the "women are at risk if they're in public alone" one, but I'm not going to immediately assume they're ones you hold.
