Safety of women on public spaces.
Run for Safety campaign
Violence and sexual harassment in public spaces restricts women’s freedom of movement, reduces their access to essential services, and negatively impacts their health and well-being. Domestic violence in the home is a widely-recognised issue today with an estimated 1 n 3 women experiencing physical or sexual abuse by a partner or family member, but violence against women and girls in public spaces is often neglected in communities.
One of the major concerns for women in urban areas is safety in public spaces in both the developed and developing world. Sexual harassment and other forms of sexual violence occur every day for women and girls globally. It happens on streets, in and around schools and workplaces, in parks, in public sanitation facilities, and in neighbourhoods.
This is thousands of people uniting with one purpose. Violence & harassment on public spaces limit women's mobility and their participation in society.
Open for all ages and level of runners/walkers - it is an inclusive day for all to come together in support of a great cause.
