A full spectrum approach to women’s safety is required. The answer is not simply more street lighting or police patrols. Every aspect needs to be considered with schools, local business, police and community groups on board. Everything from personal, social and health education (PHSE) in school to appropriate enforcement needs to be part of a coherent policy.
We all need to recognise we have a part to play. If you are an organisation that operates at night please sign-up to and implement the simple pledges in the Women's Night Safety Charter.
