This is the keynote I gave at the Women Transforming Cities conference in May, along with the accompanying powerpoint that wasn’t captured in the video. The three main points:
Re-frame the story to shift the policy. Here, I focus on troublesome existing models of stakeholders interests and re-visit Ford’s “war on the car”.
Embracing, tweaking, and expanding the tools at our disposal. I discuss participatory process and other interventions (equity lens, tactical urbanism, collaborative art practices, etc) with a critical edge.
Addressing equity in cities means using an intersectional lens: our experiences of the city are marked and produced through multiple and intersecting power relations.
