Different for Girls?

Public spaces are made to serve us all, but if the needs and wants of girls and young women are not considered in the process, how inclusive can this space really be? Julia King, colleagues from LSE Cities, and a team of peer researchers have been exploring how public spaces can be made better for girls“.

This short (12 minutes) film looks at design decisions about public space and how it’s used in a Northern English town (Crewe).

It raises a number of interesting sociological questions about gender and could function as a useful starter for a discussion of things like gendered space (both public and private) you might want to develop with your students in the classroom.
