All girls have the right to feel safe in the city.
Free to Be is a campaign that lets young women share their experiences of Melbourne. Places you love, places you avoid, places you feel safe and those that could be improved. It’s fun and easy to use and has been designed by young women to best capture their experiences.
Your experiences will be shared with the City of Melbourne to help them create a city that includes girls and young women, that encourages them to take part and ensures that every single person in the city feels safe.
For the first time in history, there are more people living in cities than in rural areas. Each month, 5 million people move to cities in developing countries.
Because I am a Girl is working with girls in 5 cities around the world (Cairo, Egypt; Delhi, India; Hanoi, Vietnam; Kampala, Uganda and Lima, Peru) to transform cities into places of inclusion, tolerance and opportunity where girls can thrive.
