Far too often we’re reminded that our cities aren’t safe for everyone, and even more frequently that our spaces could be more inclusive, useable, convenient and enjoyable for all. Given the underrepresentation of women in architecture and urban design, how has gender influenced our built landscapes? Is there a gender-neutral approach to urban planning—and if so, what is it?
