Gender, violence and public spaces can mix in horrific circumstances. In recent times, security has become a priority in public spaces. However, the dangers that women specifically face are rarely addressed, and often women are deemed responsible for their own safety in a culture of victim blaming. This book examines the difficult politics of gendered violence and the forms of discrimination that are taken for granted in the context of formal equality between men and women. There is yet much to learn about violence against women in public spaces.
