Organiser Women in Urbanism Aotearoa

Organiser of Rethinking Tāmaki Makaurau from the Perspective of Women

Women in Urbanism Aotearoa seeks to transform our cities into safe, accessible and equitable urban environments for all people by supporting and amplifying the voices and actions of all self-identifying women and girls.

Women in Urbanism Aotearoa is working to provide an intersectional feminist platform for women from all backgrounds to share their insights on how cities could be better for everyone. The historical gender imbalance in the fields that shape cities have led to poor urban outcomes such as inadequate street lighting, missing pram ramps and infrequent public transport outside of commuting hours. These issues disproportionately affect women and the most vulnerable members of our society. By increasing women’s participation and leadership in the decision-making processes of urban development and governance, we can work to address these concerns and create a more inclusive, accessible and equitable city.
