Not too long ago, women were not allowed to be full and equal members of society. This is no longer the case, yet even today women often do not feel safe in public spaces. According to the Creating Safe Spaces in Cities for Women survey published in 2013, one in four women in France had felt scared at least once while walking around the city, and one in five women had been catcalled. Experts argue that urban planning and design can create spaces that would project a sense of security for both sexes. These designs include better lighting, open spaces and pedestrian zones that make women feel protected and safe.
