Sammanfattning: The purpose of the study is to understand different aspects of women's feelings of insecurity when navigating in public areas with a focus on their own place of residence. We highlight some factors that affect the feeling of insecurity, such as environmental factors, previous experiences or the risk of being exposed to xenophobia or sexism. We are also interested in how women handle their insecurity and how insecurity is affected by power structures such as the gender power gap and white privilege. It appears that all of the respondents behave vigilantly towards other people, especially men, when they are in public. This vigilance is expressed in different ways depending on the situation and the positions of the different respondents. The interesting thing is that this vigilance seems to be present regardless of whether the respondents describe themselves as safe or unsafe in public. Another important aspect that is highlighted is how the feeling of security increases when the respondents feel that they can identify with people they meet on the street, as it gives a feeling of inclusion.
