Episode 14: Jane Jacobs — Super Citizen
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 email@example.com.
And if you like these conversations and advocating for human-scale cities, you can donate to our efforts on our Patreon page at www.patreon.com/thirdwaveurbanism. Thank you all for listening!
