What are women and girls safe spaces?
A safe space is a formal or informal place where women and girls feel physically and emotionally safe.
The term ‘safe,’ in the present context, refers to the absence of trauma, excessive stress, violence (or fear of violence), or abuse.
It is a space where women and girls, being the intended beneficiaries, feel comfortable and enjoy the freedom to express themselves without the fear of judgment or harm.
The key objectives of a safe space are to provide an area where women and girls can: Socialize and re-build their social networks; Receive social support; Acquire contextually relevant skills; Access safe and non-stigmatizing multi-sectoral GBV response services (psychosocial, legal, medical); Receive information on issues relating to women’s rights, health, and services.
