Rachel Lees-Green talks to Idealog about why we need Women in Urbanism
The statistics don’t lie: the bulk of the those that are designing and living and urban spaces in New Zealand cities are men – but the times are changing. Globally, there is a conversation taking place on what cities would look like if equal weighting was given to all of its citizens in the design process.
How to make third places that Aucklanders want to
Jessica Rose from WiU recently wrote this excellent article for The Spinoff on Third Spaces.
"Older citizens commonly need to use walking, public transport or mobility scooters to get around, so accessibility is a basic need when going from A to B. Immediate and local becomes important: places that are en route to another destination, places where moving people is a priority over moving cars."
Pump Tracks are for Girls, too!

Making A Difference: Gabriella Jimenez Rojas
Gabriella was interviewed by Viva NZ!
"We might think of our cities as a neutral bunch of buildings and roads we use as we move through our lives but actually, whether we experience spaces as friendly or hostile often comes down to gender. As a group, women often have different needs, yet town planning tends to be dominated by men."
Planning for change -
Women in Urbanism
Our Jessica Rose was interviewed by Landscape Architecture Aotearoa.
"There are a lot of white males between the ages of 30 and 50 working in senior roles in urban design and planning in New Zealand, according to Auckland’s, Jessica Rose. It’s time for more diversity, she believes, and that’s exactly what Women in Urbanism Aotearoa (WiU), intends on promoting."
Women in Urbanism –widening the conversation about our cities
Jessica Rose writes on WiU for Bike Auckland:
"Women in Urbanism 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."
