There is a paradoxical relationship between mobile technology and women’s safety; while access to a mobile can make a woman feel safer, mobiles can also be a conduit for threats and these can act as a barrier to access and usage.

It also investigates and maps existing initiatives that tackle safety concerns and provides actionable recommendations for stakeholders on how to address them.
