This week’s episode gets to the heart of the matter — being a woman in a city and what that means for the otherwise patriarchal planning processes that have formed cities up until now. It can’t be avoided, and we argue that it shouldn’t, if we’re to improve cities for everyone.

Stick around to the end for a very special teaser of Katrina’s upcoming project The Women Led Cities Initiative, as well as a very special #urbanistwomenatwork whereby we feel old and attempt to give recent urbanist grads some advice as they enter the workforce.

As always, you can keep up with our thoughts and send us your comments on Twitter or Instagram:
Katrina can be found at @think_katrina
Kristen can be found at @blackurbanist

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!
