Why do we need an event series on gender, transport and planning? Many colleagues, both male and female, have asked me: what is not gender-friendly about transport? We are all simply human beings trying to get around… aren’t we?
Not at all. It is well documented that gender impacts women’s mobility choices and that transport services are incorrectly assumed to be gender-neutral. As a sector, we have a responsibility to respond to and overcome these challenges to create better transport systems that are accessible, safe and attractive for all users.
Women are more likely than men to trip chain, use the bus and make short, local journeys. It is important to look beyond the traditional focus on facilitating commuting in and out of cities.
This free webinar, the inaugural event in an important new series, will explore:
