Safety and public space: Mapping metropolitan gender policies

The increasing levels of violence against women in cities and metropolis leads to a complete insecurity in the streets and public areas. This report on gender equality and women in urban development, addresses the lack of safety that they face everyday. It presents the findings of a review of the policies and programmes that metropolitan governments have established to proactively respond to these concerns.  The report shows the efforts of metropolis to ensure that women and girls have the right to their cities, by mapping policies, strategies and instruments that foster safer and more accessible streets, squares, parks, neighborhoods and eventually the totality of metropolitan public spaces.
