Urban Talks
Leslie Kern (CAN)

Do we all perceive the city in the same way? Do we design them for cars or bikes? For women or men? Do we create friendly or hostile environments for ourselves? And why do we need to develop cities for everyone? Leslie Kern, a Canadian urban geographer, professor, and writer, addresses these questions. In 2019, she published a book called Feminist City, using stories to describe how difficult it is for women to function in cities planned by men. How important does Leslie think it is to include a female perspective in urban planning? And what should cities look like for women to feel comfortable in them? In the next episode of the Urban Talks series, urban planner Milota Sidorová asks these questions.
