Women have named the Melbourne train stations where they most fear for their safety.
A new analysis by Monash University asked women to record positive and negative experiences in public places on Free to Be – an online map.
Monash University’s XYX Lab examined more than 1300 pins and 600 comments left on “happy” and “sad” spaces, including train stations, during that time.
Part of the analysis revealed the stations where women felt most unsafe.
This included: Flinders Street, Richmond, Brunswick, Box Hill, Footscray, Jewell and Jacana
They also revealed the stations where women felt most safe. This included Melbourne Central, Glen Waverley, Hawksburn, Southern Cross, South Kensington, Eaglemont and West Footscray.
