In recent years, more European cities have begun to tackle the challenge of advancing gender equality by designing public spaces with gender in mind. But what does a gender-equal city look like, and how does gender-equal urban planning work in practice? This panel event brings together Eva Kail, a Vienna-based expert in gender equality in urban planning; Sara Ortiz Escalante, a feminist urban planner from the Barcelona NGO Col·lectiu Punt 6; and Stéphanie Dadour, an associate professor at École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture of Paris-Malaquais to discuss the theory and practice of gender-equal cities. This event is part of the City/Cité conferences of the Villa Albertine.
