An interest sparked by her academic research, Sarah Parry hopes to engage you in conversation about what a feminist city may be, what this means for those using it, and how may one be created?

City planners and architects can’t take the white, able-bodied cis man as the default subject and imagine everyone else as a variation on the norm. Instead the margins must become the centre.

Kern, L. (2020) The feminist city

We all use urban spaces, but we all perceive them differently. How one person may perceive an urban space may result in them using it in drastically different ways to others. But what affects this? How and why does this happen? Do men and women experience urban spaces differently? She hopes to hear the views, thoughts and experiences of anyone who uses and interacts with urban spaces, what makes them feel welcoming? What makes them feel unwelcoming? What would you like to see to make you use an urban space more often? 

Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.

Jacobs, J. (1961) The Life & Death of Great American Cities
