MONTREAL, Dec. 3, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Women In Cities International (WICI), in collaboration with the City of Montreal, requests your presence to the media launch of the Parc-Extension's Urban Safety Needs Assessment Report. This event will occur within the scope of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence campaign which represents the perfect opportunity to address public space safety issues. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow Thursday, December 4th from 9 : 30 am to 11 : 00 am at the Council Chambers of Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension located at 405, Ogilvy Avenue, second floor.
" The research conducted in this report gives us a basis from which to plan actions that can begin to touch on some of the structural issues around women and girls' safety in public space." highlighted Lori Palano, Project Coordinator at WICI. With the media, various partners and many of its members in attendance, you will hear, among others, Ms. Mary Deros, City Counsellor (Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension), talk about the importance of public participation in the urban development of their neighbourhood. The presentation of the report's results represents the first stepping-stone of the Where are the women and the girls? project that aims to consider and to act on Parc-Extension's public spaces to increase the women and the girls' safety.
WICI is a not-for-profit network that focuses on gender equality and the participation of women in urban development. The Where are the women and the girls? project advances WICI's mission which is to generate and exchange knowledge on women's and girls' experiences in urban environments.
