I've read today that a university advised their female students not to walk alone at night after 3 sexual assaults. This was considered sexist. Are we living in a society so worried about "political correctness" that we can't advice women how to be safe, because, if we do, we are being sexist?

Agreed. As a non-feminist on most issues except career and economic matters, I must say that sometimes the feminist take on things is downright silly. They should save their foot-stomping and smoke oozing from ears and nose for the right issues.
So you don't agree that women should be treated as equals socially and politically? That's all feminism is. The belief that women should be treated the same as men in every area of life. Don't let the extremists taint your view.
I think I don't need to lable myself as a "feminist" if I defend that EVERY HUMAN BEING (men and women) should be treated the same... that's not being a "feminist", that's just being fair! I don't need, & don't want to support people who "trash"
No, you don't need to label yourself anything, but I'm sick of people thinking feminism is some crazy movement with a bunch of "foot stompers". It's been so important and still needs to be - we still have a long way to go in many areas.
Criminals/rapists could care less about laws or "no means no". I get where you're coming from both genders could become victims however I suspect they're trying to address an immediate concern by offering this advice. Using commonsense is smart.
Assuming that wld b rapists r easily generalised in2 a grp is dangerously naive. Often they r in ths cases yr avrge College student, who interprets "no" 2 mean "Sure!", or a look as a come on. It's common sense to educate every1, as well as using CS
