Special Issue: Transportation Research: Part A (TR-A)

Transport, Gender, Culture

Research on gender issues in urban transportation planning is paramount because more than half of the world’s population now lives in cities, women make up half of the general population, and gender crosscuts all other 'vulnerable group' considerations. Issues of transport equity, inclusion, and justice are proving increasingly important to improve the sustainability and resilience of cities. In order to develop a panoramic view of gender issues in urban transport, we seek contributions that:

  • Examine women’s needs in transportation in different cultural contexts.
  • Reveal the extent to which gender considerations are being incorporated into urban policy and practice by local authorities.
  • Analyse the factors that support or hinder gender mainstreaming.

Contributions from the Global South are particularly welcome.
