A survey was launched as part of an international campaign to end gender-based violence.

North Lanarkshire Council is asking women to share their experiences of safety in Motherwell and Coatbridge. 

The initiative comes amid the ‘16 Days of Activism’ campaign, which runs between November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on Saturday and December 10, Human Rights Day.  

It was started in 1991 as a platform by individuals and organisations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls. 

In line with the council's efforts, posters will be displayed in pubs and nightclubs with QR links to the survey, which only takes about two minutes to complete.

Councillor Sophia Coyle, chair of the Licensing Board, said: “The survey aims to find out from women of all backgrounds and ages their experiences and concerns about the safety in two of our town centres. 

“This will help us identify areas for improvement to create a safer and more inclusive environment for everyone.”
