About this event

Following the death of Sarah Everard, there has been a national outpouring of grief and discussions about women’s safety. We want to understand the experience of women in Redbridge to understand how safe they have felt living, working and travelling through Redbridge. All residents have the right to feel safe and it is only by listening to the lived experiences can we understand what steps we need to take to ensure that this happens.

Redbridge Council has already called for local night-time businesses to join it in signing the Mayor’s Women’s Night Safety Charter to tackle violence against women and girls across the borough. The Charter forms part of the council’s ongoing work with police and residents to address the crime issues that matter most to local people, including violence against women and girls.

Cllr Jas Athwal, Leader of Redbridge Council said;

“The tragic murder of Sarah Everard followed by a national outpouring of grief, public anger and demonstrations are a loud and clear call for urgent action. It is clear far too many women still feel vulnerable and unsafe when going out in London, which is completely unacceptable.

We are committed to taking action to generate meaningful change but cannot rush this process and assume that we know how women feel. We need to take time to listen to the voices of those who have experienced harassment or abuse as well as from those women who generally feel unsafe within areas of the Borough.”
