Episode 15: Sexism in the City

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:
