Safety audit for women in 4 zones

A six month audit will be conducted in four zones viz at Anna Nagar, Tambaram, Thiruvanmiyur and Sholinganallur to identify the physical and social characteristics that make a place unsafe. This bid is to enhance the safety of women and will be carried out by an NGO called Aware which is working in collaboration with Safetipin, a Delhi based organization.

At least 50 people will work during weekends at all public spaces in the neighborhood including parks. The parameters include lighting, whether the location is deserted, how close can public transport be found, if many women are seen on the road etc. Once the audit information is compiled, each location in the four zones would be marked as safe or unsafe on Google maps.
