Episode 14: Jane Jacobs — Super Citizen

Washington Square Park: just one of Jane’s legacies (Photo by Katrina Johnston-Zimmerman)

The one, the only, Jane Jacobs. This week’s episode needs very little introduction. Kristen and Katrina talk about the new documentary Citizen Jane: Battle for the City, and the implications of privilege in protest, women in urbanism, historic preservation, and the “bad guys” (and planning paradigm) that she fought against.

Appropriately — we are also excited to highlight our new outro Urbanist Women at Work! We’re looking forward to sharing your advice as women in urbanism on social media by using the hashtag #urbanistwomenatwork, or you can email us your anonymous submission at thirdwaveurbanism@gmail.com.

As always, you can keep up with our thoughts and send us your comments on Twitter or Instagram:
