The alleged rape and murder of a young comedian as she walked home at night in Australia has prompted an outpouring of public grief and anger.

Some footage from one of her last gigs - where she tackled gender equality and feminism - was posted online. Second, the myriad ways women already "take responsibility" for their safety.

"That is a handsome way of showing just how much one person's life can ripple out and echo around the country", she said. A passerby found her body the next morning on a soccer field at Princes Park, just blocks from her house.

Social media blew up at the suggestion women shouldn't walk home at night, mainly because that implies there is a safer option.

"Every day, women are told how to behave, what to wear, and where to go for their safety, and I'm not sure we should be listening to every word of advice", she said.

Eurydice was a comedian and she was 22-years-old.

"Hyde Park was selected as it is not only a peaceful and handsome place for a vigil, but also one that is avoided by women at night due to fears of attack", she said. Our comedy community is like a family & this news is beyond heart breaking. She's been cruelly taken from us in the most awful way'.

Red Cross volunteer Kathy Cooney said many locals were upset by Ms Dixon's death and may need support from family or friends.

Eurydice had finished a gig on Tuesday night before walking home.

"A lot of us live around here and it's pretty simple - it is just not good enough from men in society".

To suggest women shouldn't walk alone at night is not only offensive, it completely disregards the burden of getting a auto.

"If you've got a mobile phone carry it and if you've got any concerns, call police". I've seen people pitch apps, being like 'can we do something to record where these things are happening and spread awareness about places to avoid?'.

Victoria state police later advised women in the area to "consider their personal safety and be aware of their surroundings" - sparking backlash over victim-blaming, according to the UK Telegraph. "But maybe I need to be more careful in the future".

But Police Minister Lisa Neville and Melbourne Lord Mayor Sally Capp admit they do not always feel safe themselves. The Australian reports he was not asked to enter a plea.
