How Men Can Be Better Allies to Women

Women’s safety in public spaces have garnered headlines recently, in response to the kidnapping and death of Sarah Everard in the UK. While people are calling for better legislation and measures to protect women, another important part of making public spaces safe for women means changing the behaviour of the other half of the population: men. We discuss why this is important and how men can help to make public spaces safer for women.
