Women and the City: how urban planning policy impacts on women


Women and the City: how urban planning policy impacts on women

 Urban planning policy is fairly gender neutral, right? - wrong!  As this Feminar will demonstrate, how our cities are planned can impact on how women use their cities, often to their disadvantage.

Clara Greed, Professor of Inclusive Urban Planning, University of the West of England, will examine how urban planning can impact on us as women in every aspect of our lives, both at the level of overall policy decisions and at the more detailed design level to show that urban spaces are still heavily gendered
