Objectives: This paper presents and discusses the findings of a research project that has conducted by the authors. Here there is an attempt to study the fear of crime among women in the light of interdisciplinary theories. We focus on two words: women and public spaces. This is because women are considered as much vulnerable at public spaces. Method: We used both quantative and qualitative methods of collection data. That is, FGDs and survey. Finding & Results: Our main findings show that the fear of crime among almost 48 percent of respondents is high, 33 percent is middle and 19 percent low. Our tabulation tabals indicate that there is a statistically significant relationship between rate of fear and income, education, neighborhood, and satisfaction with police operations.
