Mobility and gender: how can we build the right to the metropolis?


As our metropolises have been built on the basis of a ‘distant’ city model, one of sprawling and unlimited growth, mobility has become an essential tool to the right to the metropolis.

Transport systems have led to the exclusion of elements such as the subjective perception of safety, physical and economic accessibility, etc. All these factors entail restrictions on women’s mobility and, therefore, on the opportunities they could gain through equal access to fundamental goods and services

  • Gender and mobility: a matter of sustainability
