Women and Gender in Global Perspectives Program (WGGP)
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, and Sara Ortiz Escalante, a feminist urban planner from the Barcelona NGO Col·lectiu Punt 6, to discuss the theory and practice of gender-equal cities.
 
Panelists:
Eva Kail, Urban Planner, City of Vienna
Sara Ortiz Escalante, Urban Planner, Col·lectiu Punt 6

Moderator:
Faranak Miraftab, Professor of Urban and Regional Planning and Acting Director of the Women and Gender in Global Perspectives Program, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
