Safe and Sound
Safe and sustainable mobility is a vital part of empowering women, and plays an important role in achieving wider social and economic development. The report explores the implications of inadequate personal security on public transport, and reviews a large number of published international papers, reports and news articles, to scope the extent of harassment and identify potential responses. The report is the first stage of a larger study which aims to develop international guidance and principles for policy and decision-makers, transport/transit operators and other service providers; recommendations to help civil society and women’s groups. The report was sponsored by FIA Foundation, and written by Heather Allen, an independent consultant.
