Taking non-commercial alleys in Pingshan Village, Nanshan District, Shenzhen as an example, this study identified and extracted 5 categories of 32 environmental factors that have negative effects on women’s safety perception, then ranked and discussed the environmental factors that have significant negative effects, and explored whether women’s socio-demographic variables would lead to differences in safety perception. The results showed that the social environment factors in the alley were more likely to make women feel uneasy than the physical environment factors. Negative special groups and animal activities were the most important factors causing women’s uneasiness, followed by the lack of maintenance of the vertical features of the alleys, such as falling objects and chaotic electrical facilities. In addition, there are significant differences in women’s safety perception among different social backgrounds, that is, educated women, knowing about negative reports in urban villages, and young women are more likely to feel insecure.

Key words: urban villages, non-commercial alleys, women’s safety perception, environmental factors; Shenzhen city


以深圳市南山区平山村非商业街巷为例, 识别对女性安全感产生负面影响的5类32个环境因素, 并对具有显著负面影响的环境因素进行排序与探讨, 同时探究女性的社会人口学变量是否会导致安全感知差异。结果表明, 街巷的社会环境因素比物理环境因素更容易让女性感到不安。负面的特殊人群及动物活动是引起女性不安的最主要因素, 其次是缺乏维护的街巷竖向特征(包括可能下坠的物品、混乱的电力设施等)。另外, 不同社会背景女性的安全感存在明显差异, 即受教育程度越高、了解城中村负面传闻越多以及青年少年阶段的女性越容易感到不安。
