Use, enjoyment and transit in the world’s cities is unique for women.
On a daily basis, women experience multiple expressions of violence in urban public spaces. According to nighttime safety measurements for women taken by the District Secretariat for Women in Bogota, these expressions of violence do not allow them to freely and safely enjoy the city’s structure, especially at night. Behaviour such as street sexual harassment, and physical and sexual violence against women and girls increase a structural inequality that is consolidated under a city model that does not meet the needs of urban displacement in an egalitarian manner. As this inequality grows, urban planning in cities demands a gender perspective, a differentiated approach that makes it possible to build spaces and environments that are participatory, egalitarian, gender-diverse, sustainable and free of any type of violence for those who inhabit them.
A Replicability Manual, derived from a Tactical Urbanism Pilot, indicates the path for other cities to replicate smartly.
