How Cities Fail Women: Towards Safety and Inclusion in the Feminist City
One of a series of webinars on Building Feminist Cities, Leslie Kearn will be the speaker. She is the author of Feminist City: Claiming Space in a Man-Made World, will examine how cities have long failed women by refusing to acknowledge gender differences in the ways people move, work, live, and play in urban environments. She contends that women have often been excluded or sidelined in planning, policymaking, and consultation processes regarding transit, housing, jobs, and safety; and will explore best and emerging innovative practices for improving safety from gender-based violence in our cities.
