This chapter explores the implications that community safety policies have for young women. It does not aim to offer a broad analysis of all the gender implications of the shift to community safety approaches. It is based on one research study of young women who live in a particularly deprived area, where they perceive the risks to their safety and their well-being to be high. It focuses on data that indicate the strategies adopted by some of them.

Keywords:   community safety, young women, gender implications, research study, deprived area, well-being, strategies
