Watch the video and think about:

  • Are city spaces designed fairly in Toronto?
  • What are some sensitivities that city planners should keep it mind?

On screen: The Path

[Woman faces the camera. She stands on a sidewalk on a street that is enclosed by an underpass. It is night time. Cars are passing her.]

Woman states, “I know that this path should be a relatively safe space. But when it’s dark and empty, I can’t help but feel afraid. Especially as a woman.”

On screen: Women are forced to avoid dark spaces for the sake of safety, which is a real problem. This restricts our right to move freely in the city. This has to change.
