The conversation surrounding the safety of women may not be new, but the devastating murder of Sarah Everard has been a catalyst for the resurgence of this discussion which we recently covered in our latest 4Talks webinar available here.

To keep the conversation going, we provided our 16–24 year old 4Youth community members with a platform to discuss what it means to be a woman.

Exploring their experiences as young people in contemporary society, we highlight where they think the problem stems from and what they believe needs to be done by society, the media and brands to make the world a safer place for women.

A few key stats:

  • Almost 70% of 16-24 year olds have been catcalled
  • 0ver 60% have been sent unsolicited images
  • 63% of 16–24-year-olds, believe brands could be doing more to help women feel safe in society
