Safety of Women in public places

This Council believes that each of us has the right to expect to be able to go about our daily lives without fear of intimidation, harassment and violence. Walking alone in public places shouldn’t be a danger to women.

This Council further notes the lived experiences of many women in our town ranging from verbal abuse, harassment and intimidation caused by men. This Council recognises that many men in our town want to do the right thing to make sure women feel safe and secure, but sadly there are some who encourage and engage in abusive behaviour - or simply fail to challenge it.

A commission has been established with our partners to improve safety for women across the Borough. This survey aims to understand why women don’t feel safe and whether that is specific to particular areas of the Town or more widespread. The commission will also identify ideas and measures that would improve safety in public areas. 

We are also looking at how men can become better allies to support women in public places.

This survey should take you no longer than 15 minutes to complete. The closing date is Sunday 27 June 2021.
