  • Expert Discussion on "What Could a Feminist City Look Like?"

    Speaker Series

    -

    Nearly 40 years on from Dolores Hayden’s famous envisioning of a feminist city in her 1980 article “What Would a Non-Sexist City Be Like?”, the city remains deeply inequitable. This event will gather esteemed local urbanists, activists, and writers to engage in a moderated discussion on access and gender equity in the city. The conversation will explore public policy, decision-making processes, community engagement, and the urban built form, and discuss potential paths forward to creating a more inclusive city. The discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A.
