Historically, and in a large extent still today, our cities are designed and built by men. This often results in a “gender blindness,” a lack of knowledge about, or attention to, the differing needs and priorities of women, compared to men. The result is cities that creates barriers, insecurity and restricting women access to services such as education, healthcare, employment, culture, sport and safe access to streets, parks, cultural centers and other public spaces. Consequently women have limited access to social, cultural and economic opportunities.
