Streets by women
Whenever you cannot walk freely in the streets of a city because you are a child, a woman, disabled or a senior citizen, and need to be aware of your surroundings to be safe, you are trapped within the confines of that city, of those streets. You lose freedom.
We should also take into account that those groups we have just mentioned sum up the highest percentage of inhabitants, which is why re-designing our cities could lead to a necessary and imperative change in the values of society.
This way, urban planning thought by women could benefit all those cases of “discrimination” more or less hidden in the thousand “unkind” urban elements we can find in our surroundings.
This blog is meant to detect these daily situations in the city and open them up for debate.
