Unsafe in the City: Research Summary

Plan International first published The State of the World’s Girls
Report in 2007. The 2018 report on cities is the first in a new
series that each year will examine the behaviours, attitudes
and beliefs that limit girls’ freedom and opportunities in specific
environments or sectors.

Cat-calling, stalking, groping and worse – it doesn’t matter where they live, girls face harassment and abuse on a daily basis all around the world, simply because of their gender.

This summary report shares findings from this recent research by Plan International where over 21,000 girls across Delhi, Kampala, Lima, Madrid and Sydney reported the areas in their city where they feel safe and unsafe, using our digital mapping tool developed in partnership with Monash University.
