Women and Girls’ Eyes on the Neighbourhood: Feeling Safe in Public Space

Following a very successful event at Ottawa City Hall on November 14, 
we are pleased to announce that the “Women and Girls’ Eyes on the 
Neighbourhood: Feeling Safe in Public Space” report is now available 
on the CPO website at www.crimepreventionottawa.ca
<http://www.crimepreventionottawa.ca/en/publications/violence-against-women-publications>.

Women and girls often have different concerns than men and boys about
safety in public spaces. By starting from women and girls’ of what 
contributes to feeling safe or unsafe, United Neighbours of
Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre (PQCHC) and City for All 
Women Initiative (CAWI) worked with residents to unearth their insights,
concerns and recommended solutions for improving neighbourhood safety.
Through focus groups, safety audits, photography, safety awareness workshops,
community conversations, and Body Mapping, these women and girls have
identified safety concerns and mapped out recommendations and
community-driven solutions to approaching safety as a gendered issue in 
Ottawa’s West end.
