Critical Design Event - Designing for Gender Equality

Ginger Daniel, MLA 2013 Candidate

Addressing gender inequality and women’s empowerment has been globally recognized as a breakthrough strategy for addressing all major development goals and as a precondition for overcoming poverty, hunger and disease. 

While designers (architects, landscape architects, planners, engineers) are frequently moved or called to serve in the developing world, they are not necessarily equipped to see and understand unique challenges and opportunities due to gender inequality. 

Without this lens, design interventions may not address these needs and have the potential to further reinforce existing obstacles, discrimination or influences of the built environment. 

As designers, how do we approach our design process and interventions to attend to these critical gender dynamics and development opportunities?
