It’s vital that women and girls feel safe to go about their daily lives. That’s why we’re calling on governments to ensure safe routes and public transport to school, work or hospital.
Join campaigners in 18 countries demanding Safe Cities for Women.
We will deliver your message to the United Cities and Local Governments organisation, calling on them to act on violence against women and girls.
To all members of United Cities and Local Governments,
I demand that local governments make cities safe for women.
Women everywhere must have safe routes to school or work and be free to live their lives in safety. Public transport has to be safe and serve the whole community. And adequate street lighting must be installed to ensure women feel and are safe.
Police have to serve everyone in the city equally, and women’s complaints of violence and harassment must be taken seriously.
Women must play a role in the design, planning and updating of public spaces, to ensure everyone is safe in their public spaces.
Please heed our call and act on violence against women in cities and public spaces.
