  Personal safety 11 January 2005  
Winning Women's Votes
experience of crime

Last week Woman's Hour began its Winning Women's Votes campaign. We are asking what issues are important to women as a possible general election approaches and what will motivate women to go to the ballot box. Each week we will be examining an area of policy and this week it's safety and security. 

Today we look at women's personal safety and their experience of crime - in the home, at work and in public.  Jenni discusses the issues with Nicola Harwin, CBE, director of Women's Aid and Dame Pauline Neville Jones.
