New Insights on Irish Women’s Personal Safety Concerns by Doorjammer
A nationwide study on personal safety amongst Irish women by ‘Doorjammer’, carried out by iReach in September 2013, reveals troubling insights about the level of fear and anxiety amongst Irish women around their own personal safety:
· more than one in three women (29 per cent) say they feel scared and unsafe being on their own at home at night.
· two out of ten women (21per cent) even fear travelling to work alone.
· almost half of the women surveyed (45 per cent) say that concerns about personal safety prevent them from travelling solo.
· 38% of all women admit experiencing disturbed sleep because they believed an intruder was in their home.
· Three out of ten people have fallen victim to burglary with 1 in 3 of these burglaries happening while someone was in the house.
With new figures supplied by An Garda Siochana showing that residential burglaries have increased by 9% compared to 2012 figures, personal safety in the home, is a major cause of worry for many women in Ireland.
