Spurred by a spate of sex attacks in Zuccotti Park, Occupy Wall Street protesters built a “safe house” for women on Friday.

The 16-square-foot military frame tent is designed to shelter up to 30 women from the predators lurking around the lower Manhattan encampment.

“It will be used to protect ourselves from people out there,” said Nan Terrie, 17, a protester from East Oakland Park, Fla. “I’m sick and tired of women getting taken advantage of, raped and murdered.

“We need to take charge. We can make it happen without men telling us what to do,” said Terrie, who heads a protester subcommittee called Strong Women Rules.

Terrie said the tent, erected along the southern edge of the park near Cedar St., will be outfitted with bunk beds, drawers and a welcome table. A second tent will house a computer.

the 16 SQFT Tent????? what is that 2 x 8 or 4 X 4 and that will accomodate 30 women, must be really small women. But these are the college educated 99% math must be difficult for them.

Murdered?? I haven’t read reports of murders, although it wouldn’t surprise me.

Have there been murders at the Occupoopers camps?

Morons don’t even know the difference between a 16 square foot tent and a 16 FOOT SQUARE TENT. Bunch of math failures at OWS.
