Women's Safety in Public Spaces

Sexual harassment and other forms of sexual violence in public spaces are everyday occurrence for women and girls in Bangladesh and around the world. It is estimated that 90% of the women and girls between the ages of 10-18 have experienced sexual harassment or violence and unwanted physical contact in streets, markets, public transport and public places (Study by Action Aid). Furthermore, during the COVID-19 pandemic, women have been experiencing bullying and sexual harassment or violence on social media. All of these hinder women’s full potential and participation in all spheres of life.
