We have been doing some research on non-academic and academic literature on
how there are different types on mobility inside cities and those
differences are also, or should be, gendered (not into the idea of the
binomial definition of gender but the majority of info we have found
approaches that way) ans also on how perceptions/infrastructure mold the
mobility patrons on women and men*.
Not so surprising we have found the bast majority of urban plans, bike
lanes and even bike "activism" all around the globe keeps repeating the no
consideration/misogynist way to do-it, the no consideration on
reproductive work (that not only women do, but in bast majority the do).
Sooooo, I write this email for 2 reasons:
1-Ask, if you have any, for literature that approaches mobility with a
"gender perspective" that can or cannot include this on the text but, you
know that doesn't keep talking of men as the norm when creating new bus
lanes or bike lanes etc.
2- If anyone wants to open a support/study/awesome group to discuss this
things (will be awesome), let me know!
And hopefully I will see a bunch of you in LA
