Take a look at the intensities in this map of metro Melbourne. XYX Lab are undertaking a research project titled ‘Women & Girls Only: Understanding the Spaces of Sexual Harassment in Australian Public Transport Spaces’. Current statistics suggest that 10% of all public sexual harassment offences occur in public transport spaces. It is likely this figure is a gross miscalculation as it is estimated that 90% of sexual harassment cases are not reported. As a result, women regularly modify their behaviour in public transport spaces. The project targets these public sites, identifying hotspots as well as the environmental factors where female commuters experience sexual harassment. Here the XYX Lab is innovative. They involve women and girls in the analysis to propose strategies, policies and toolkits not only for women themselves, but for stakeholders and policy makers. This project will move beyond simply plotting the incidence of sexual harassment to examining the fundamental qualities and contexts which are conducive to sexual harassment. #xyxlab #nikikalms #womenandgirlsonly
