The council have created an anonymous online tool where women can drop a pin onto a map to highlight the areas where they don't feel safe.
They have also created a form to take suggestions on how to help make women feel more safe.
Already women have begun dropping pins into the map, with the area around Barking railway station collecting 82 pins alone.
Councillor Margaret Mullane, Cabinet Member for Enforcement and Community Safety said: “Ensuring residents feel safe while walking around their streets comes second to none, so that’s why it is extremely important for us to understand where people feel unsafe.
“I would like to encourage all women to take part in the survey, so that we can use the data to improve safety in these areas.”
It comes in the wake of Sarah Everard's death earlier this year.
Ms Everard disappeared while walking home from a friend's house in Clapham.
A Metropolitan police officer was later charged with her murder.
A vigil for the Londoner on Clapham Common then turned violent as police attempted to disperse attendees.
The incidents sparked protests over women's safety around the world.
