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.
