Safe Transportation in Chile


Globally, violence in transport and public spaces, such as sexual harassment, represents one of the most significant mobility barriers affecting women disproportionately more than men. The Thomson Reuters Foundation reported that Latin American cities have the most dangerous transport systems for women, with about six in every ten women physically harassed. Women who live on the outskirts of large cities and have long daily commutes are particularly susceptible to harassment while traveling on public transport.
