Use it to stop sexual harassment and abuse in our cities.

Urban poverty and inequality is increasing sexual violence, harassment and fear in cities. Safe Cities is a campaign which involves 20 ActionAid country organisations. The goal of the campaign is to reduce women’s experience and fear of sexual violence in urban spaces. To do this, the violence must be recognised and acted upon by decision-makers.

 

Why Safe Cities?

  • According to UN Women, in São Paolo, Brazil, a woman is assaulted every fifteen seconds.
  • In one survey from Cambodia 8% of men reported that they had raped a woman who was not their partner. 5% of men reported that they had participated in gang rape.
  • In Bangladesh over 60% of women interviewed by ActionAid said they would not tell female friends to go to the police if attacked.
