It's important for everyone! I have to remind myself of it alllll the time. If someone is making me feel uncomfortable on public transport, for instance, I will often feel reluctant to move out of fear of hurting their feelings or making them angry. We have it so ingrained (especially women, I think) to be nice and polite all the time, that it's often a really struggle to go against that.
I often struggled with this when catching a Cab 0n my own back in the day. I wanted to sit in the back but would feel 'rude' and horrible if I did, so would reluctantly sit in the front.
