Project ‘Free to Be’ – Girls sharing their stories to create safer cities in Australia

‘All girls have the right to feel safe in the city’, to create safer cities for girls, Plan International Australia launched project ‘Free to Be’, a crowd-mapping website that enables girls and young women in Sydney and Melbourne to create changes by identifying and sharing public spaces that make them feel uneasy, scared or happy and safe.

The data and stories from the project will be shared with decision-makers to advocate for positive change in the neighborhood and the city. A global research will also be published to bring attention to the common and various challenges girls and young women face in cities.
