‘Gender sensitive’ cities – why should we care? (Thomas Sharp Lecture)

Emeritus Professor Marion Roberts, University of Westminster

Date/Time: Thursday 11 October 2018

Since the UN’s call for gender equality, gender mainstreaming has been brought into urban planning and design. This lecture explored how gender plus concerns – including the reconciliation of paid employment and unpaid care work, personal safety and transport – remain important for city planners and designers, and asks if there is more for academics, practitioners and policymakers to do.
