How to design a city for women
Publication date: 2013
The article focuses on a transportation study in Vienna which highlighted the gender differences in the way different modes transportation are used and the perceptions and understanding of the urban area.
As the article reports:
“The majority of men reported using either a car or public transit twice a day – to go to work in the morning and come home at night. Women on the other hand, used the city’s network of sidewalks, bus routes, subway lines and streetcars more frequently and for a myriad of reasons.”
It goes on to report how the city responded and gives background to the gender mainstreaming work in the city.
