RAKIRAKI resident Shivangni Devi says the new constitution must have provisions which provide adequate security and safety for women.
She said most women feel insecure among men in their community and many fear for their safety.
Ms Devi told the commission that women often felt unsafe in their own neighbourhoods.
"When girls walk alone in the streets, boys often pass comments at them and frighten them," Ms Devi said.
"We used to have a police post at the Nadovi triangular area which has now been removed and as a result, I would say I, as a girl, feel unsafe.
"While I was coming home from work one day, some people were drinking just near the town. As I passed by, they started passing abusive comments at me. They didn't have any fear.
"I want the commission to take note of my submission and to have a provision in the new constitution."
Ms Devi was among 30 people who made submissions to the commission in on Saturday.
Commission member Penny Moore said about 500 submissions have been received so far.
She urged people to come up and freely make submissions without fear.
