Creating Safe and Inclusive Public Spaces for Women

Public spaces foster social connections, encourage physical activity and recreational pursuits, and play a significant role in community life and neighbourhood cohesiveness. Good design is key to creating public spaces that are inclusive, accessible and safe for everyone in the community, in particular for women and girls.

Creating Safe and Inclusive Public Spaces for Women report from Women's Health East examines the impact of public spaces on health and wellbeing, and applies a gendered lens to urban planning. It also looks at women’s experience of public spaces, and highlights the importance of women’s voices and expertise in creating spaces that are safe and inclusive for everyone.
