Dorina Pojani lecturing on feminist planning at U3A

How cities differ when women design them?

In the 20th century, in conjunction with women’s liberation from the bonds of tradition, cities have been created that are very inconvenient for women. A conversation on feminist planning is paramount because nearly 90% of the Australian population lives in cities and gender crosscuts all other ‘vulnerable group’ considerations.

The lecture was part of UQ|UP’s outreach and engagement with the broader community.

U3A is the University of the Third Age. It is a worldwide self-help organisation promoting learning for personal enjoyment and wellbeing. Keeping the brain active, doing interesting things and making new friends are essential for helping older people to maximise their chances of independence. U3A is making a very substantial contribution to society by helping its members to remain healthy and active for longer.
