Making Seoul Safer for Women Lauded as Most Popular Policy

I know South Korea specially the Seoul city as I have stayed there for a year. Korea is quite safe for women in compare with most of the other countries.And recently, the Seoul Metropolitan Government recently announced the 10 most popular policies as chosen by local citizens from a list of 99 implemented by the current municipal government in line with people’s recommendations and requests.

A 10-day online survey aimed at gauging how satisfied people are with the city's projects attracted 27,946 citizens, with 708 posting their opinions.

The most popular policy was making the city safer for women by preempting crimes through careful urban design, such as by installing glass elevators in buildings, as well as mirrors in residential areas, parks, parking lots and on school premises.

Seoul City will announce its guidelines for more buildings and facilities to be built in line with the policy by the end of this year.
