Everyone has to get around somehow and for many people, walking is the cheapest/easiest option. But, for many Australian women, walking isn’t their best option. Amongst women walking home follows the thoughts of the possible dangers. “Over four million adults, or 26% of those aged 18 years and over, reported feeling unsafe alone at home, walking alone at night in their neighbourhood, or taking public transport at night alone.” (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2010)
My digital artefact will be for people to come together in a community to try and change the future of safety of women in public.
