About the Safer Streets project


About the Women's Safety Safer Streets Project

New data published by UN Women UK has found that, unfortunately the majority of women and girls in the UK are experiencing sexual harassment in public spaces.

This project, overseen by the Oxford Safer Communities Partnership, aims to reduce the risk to women and girls during a night-out in Oxford.  Everyone deserves to feel safe and enjoy everything Oxford has to offer.

How to get involved?

This map aims to provide women and girls with a way to voice where they feel safe or unsafe, and so provide data to the partnership and ideas for change. 

You can use the map to give us feedback on as many places as you want. Drag the pin to the location you want and click 'Have your say' to fill out a short survey.
