CAMPOS, Paola A et al. Experiences of street harassment and associations with perceptions of social cohesion among women in Mexico City. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2017, vol.59, n.1, pp.102-105. ISSN 0036-3634.


To document the frequency and forms of street harassment and examine the association between street harassment experiences and perceptions of social cohesion.

Materials and methods:

Baseline survey data collected among women seeking care in public health clinics in Mexico City were used for analysis.


Nearly two-thirds (62.8%) of women reported experiencing some form of street harassment in the prior month; women with street harassment experiences reported significantly lower perceived social cohesion (b=-0.46; 95%CI: -0.69,-0.22).


Findings indicate reducing street harassment may have important implications for improving women’s perceived social cohesion and their safety in Mexico City.

Keywords : street harassment; urban area; gender violence; Latin America.
