Grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls, the empowerment of women, and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. Rooted in UN Women’s mandate on ending violence against women, UN Women has been working since 2011 to implement a Global Flagship Initiative “Safe Cities and Safe Public Spaces” including a Safe Cities Free of Violence against Women and Girls Global Programme, in over 40 cities. The Initiative is the first ever global effort to develop model approaches to prevent and respond to sexual violence against women and girls in public spaces, which can be assessed for impact.
The Flagship builds on over 40 years of sustained efforts undertaken by women’s organizations, grassroots, and international networks, local governments in cities around the world to create safe inclusive and sustainable cities for women and for all. It was designed with local, regional and global partners in response to the growing concerns about every day experiences of women and girls all over the world, as they experience sexual harassment and other forms of sexual violence in public spaces as they go about their daily routines, whether on city streets, parks, market, pathways to schools, buses and trains or in their own neighborhoods. Such occurrences infringe upon women and girls’ rights and freedoms as equal citizens to enjoy and pursue freely opportunities for autonomous mobility, education, work, recreation, and participation in political life. Despite affecting millions of women and girls, such forms of violence have long been tolerated, and the issue is largely neglected in policy and practice.
Building on “Greater Cairo Safe Cities Free of Violence against Women and Girls” (safe cities and safe public spaces programme phase I), UN Women is scaling up efforts to develop comprehensive tools and approaches to prevent and respond to sexual harassment and other forms of violence against women and girls in public spaces to Alexandria and Damietta governorates. The Programme is centered around four key outcomes:
1) Gender-responsive locally relevant and owned interventions identified: Local ownership is the cornerstone for this flagship.
2) Comprehensive legislation and policies to prevent and respond to SVAWG in public spaces to enhance capacities of local stakeholders.
3) Investments in the safety and economic viability of public spaces: including public infrastructure and economic development and with special concern for creating economic opportunities for women in the renewed public spaces.
4) Social and cultural transformation – to ensure that attitudes and behaviors related to women’s and girls’ rights to enjoy public spaces.
Within this context, UN Women country office is looking to hire part time (3 days per week) field coordinator for Safe Cities Programme in Alexandria.
