Women should feel safe at concerts. But they don’t

Georgina just doing the maths: not safe on the way to the gig, not safe at the gig, not safe getting home from the gig, not necessarily safe at home after the gig.

Women should feel safe at concerts. But they don’t

Shebah will help with the getting safely to and from, while it’s also drawing attention to the wider issue of women’s safety and violence against women.
Since Shebah has been announced, many men have shown they’re unaware of how uncomfortable and potentially dangerous it is for women to use public transport. (Sorry to have to break it to them.)

This discomfort and potential danger of course, extends to many other areas of women’s – and many men’s – lives. Initiatives like Shebah will help keep the focus on the wide-ranging impacts of men’s violence while providing women with safe, comfortable and flexible travel and work opportunities #winwin
