Expanding Access To Opportunities For Girls And Women - Working Towards Safe Mobility

A woman’s place in the world, in society and the economy is shaped by her ability to move freely. Restricting that freedom has long-ranging impacts for her life and the lives of those for whom she cares. These impacts, however, are rarely addressed by transport planners, predominately because there is little data about how women move, what they experience and how that shapes their lives. As a result, transport systems, vehicles, even timetables are all designed with men in mind and that fail women on every level often forcing them out of education, out of the workplace and, in some cases, out of public spaces entirely.
