Programming on safe cities for women should be based on a clear understanding that making cities safer for women makes cities safer for everyone
A city that
- promotes its citizen’s rights, including women’s;
- implements actions for the prevention of gender-based violence;
- provides assistance in case of threats; and
- designs its environment in a way that allows women to circulate without fear of being attacked
is a city whose society and local government are committed to the well-being of all citizens, and therefore is a safer city for all.
