Earlier in the week, a man was charged with raping and murdering Dixon as she walked home from a comedy performance.

Police in Australia have been accused of victim blaming for telling people to look after their own safety after a comedian was murdered.

He reportedly presented at a local police station not long after security footage was released which showed a suspect in the case.

She left a bar with her friend at 10:30pm, bought a protein bar and a Dr Pepper, hugged her friend goodbye and said: "I think I feel like walking tonight".

BBC reports that a 19-year-old male has been charged with the comedian's death. Her murder reminds us of the persistent and vicious war on women, that even when we think we're safe, we're not. It is not known if Dixon knew her attacker or what the motive may have been for the killing.

St Bernard's and Melbourne University Blacks players held a minute's silence in memory of Eurydice Dixon.

As someone who is a comedian, as someone who is in that community, I have just seen so many of my friends devastated by this news.

It's terrifying because, for her, it was such an average night - in a year's time she probably wouldn't have remembered any of the specifics.

"We just want to live in a world where the navigating of dark alleyways or parks does not become the governance of our existence". "Make sure people know where you are and if you've got a mobile phone carry it and if you've got any concerns at all call police".

He added: "We'll never change a thing until we do".

"Our bottom line is that no matter what, it's up to men to not stalk, rape, harass and murder women wherever they are". They also said they would dramatically increase police presence in the park, so they weren't saying the only way to prevent these crimes is for women to be more careful. "Rest in peace Eurydice", one woman wrote. And that's when I saw all of the grief and all of the sadness turn into anger.

"There are a lot of important women in our lives and we need to change".

"She had a great passion for women's issues and social justice issues and she drew upon them a lot in the material that she produced as a comic", fellow comedian Nicky Barry told the Australian Broadcasting Corp.

"I feel like when men attack, it's all about the attacker, what is wrong where this guy, who behaves like that".
