The future is female

29 Oct 2019

Street vending is hard -- and even harder if you are female. That is what we found in our interviews with 50 women vendors, conducted over this past year. We collected their responses to a series of questions, and yesterday published a report, Vulnerable in Itself, laying out the issues faced by our women members. Women are less likely to have permits, for example. And nearly half of women vendors told us they feel unsafe at work. The report included recommendations for both the City and SVP ourselves to better serve female vendors, so please read it. 

You can also check out some of the press it generated here, here, and here (en Espanol).
