Tips for Young Women in the city

When I'm walking around late at night, I always feel like I need to watch myself more than I'm used to (especially when I'm waiting on bart, muni, etc.). Also, I fear that panhandlers, who are usually mentally ill, but are normally nonviolent, could lash out at me at any point. Besides carrying pepper spray wherever I go, what are some tips to avoid situations where I feel unsafe? Better yet, how is our government making our city safer?
