Things for women include: being more safe, being designed around child care, being designed around shopping and going to many places in town, doing chores.

The womans perspective.

    Planners also run the run the risk of reinforcing stereotypes in attempting to characterize how men and women use city space. To distance themselves from this, city officials have begun to shy away from the term gender mainstreaming, opting instead for the label 'Fair Shared City.'

Obligatory ford commercial.

Here I thought we were working towards a world where women were considered no different than men, and are just as capable of accomplishing tasks and dealing with inconveniences.
