Sydney’s Sexual Harassment Data Map

A disturbing map has revealed the spots in Sydney where women are most likely to be sexually harassed.

Disturbing data, entered into a mobile app, has revealed more than 2,000 locations across Sydney where women have been physically and verbally harassed.

A staggering 75 per cent of the locations were described as ‘bad’ due to the level of sexual harassment.

The worst three areas were Central Station, Newtown Station and King Street, and in between Town Hall and Hyde Park.

The women’s experiences were reported and mapped in crowd-mapping website Free to Be, which was first implemented in Sydney in April to May 2018.

Why Sydney?

Sydney was singled out only because the data was privately recorded and shared. It would be interesting to compare these stats to other cities like Cape Town, Los Angeles, Auckland,?London, Berlin etc.
