Almost half of young women feel unsafe walking alone after dark in their communities and one in five young females report concerns about personal safety according to Mission Australia’s Gender Gaps - Findings from the Youth Survey 2018 report.

The new report pinpoints stark differences between female and male responses to the Youth Survey 2018, highlighting that more females than males were concerned about almost every topic in the survey.

The data about young people aged between 15 and 19 comes from almost 30,000 responses to Mission Australia’s Youth Survey 2018.
