Data has emerged as a tool to surface challenges that women and gender minorities face in navigating cities, however, it remains limited in its collection. Where accessible, stakeholders are either unavailable to derive value from it or it fails to be safeguarded, potentially magnifying existing, often gendered, privacy risks. The paper outlines existing approaches to data collection and sharing for women’s safety and proposes principles for a data steward to guide the responsible collection and management of data for safer cities.
