Cities for Women: Addressing Gender, Safety, and Walkability in Modern Cities

Cities shape our experiences, but not all experiences are created equal. Women, in their daily lives, often navigate urban spaces with an acute sense of awareness tied to concerns about aggression and harassment. These concerns are not just intangible fears; they manifest in real behaviours – precautionary steps or outright avoidance of certain areas, particularly during nighttime hours. This significantly impacts their mobility and the way they interact with urban environments. The video podcast delves deep into this urban gender divide with two experts: Lamia Abdelfattah and Lily Scarponi. 

With insights from the STEP UP project, it discuss how security concerns stemming from perceptions of risk, vulnerability, and the fear of violence become major mobility barriers for women.
