This section captures the different instances of gendered spaces, to understand the associated perceptions and contexts that define the comfort and safety for women to access public spaces. There are multiple factors deciding which spaces women access: when, why and how the culture of the city sometimes influences how women move and act within the public realm. 

We conducted a competition on this theme in March 2022. You can view the featured entries here:
