Gender Equality is key to the ‘Right to the City for all’ struggle!
The International Women’s Day (IWD), on March 8, and this month as a whole mark a key moment in the feminist struggle around the world. Gender equality is one of the eight components of the Right to the City and one of its key elements. There can be no Right to the City without gender equality. From the Global Platform for the Right to the City (GPR2C) we fight for cities and human settlements that adopt all necessary measures to combat discrimination against women and girls in all its forms; for cities/human settlements that take all appropriate measures to ensure the full development of women and girls, guaranteeing them equality in the exercise and realization of human rights, and a life free of violence.
We join the global mobilization, calling for Women’s Right to the City and opening this web space to visiblize some of the contributions for Gender Equality and the Right to the City that are developing the organizations of the Global Platform for the Right to the City and its allies.

Women’s Right to the City Manifesto
Join the GPR2C manifesto for Women’s Right to the City developed by its Women, Gender and Diversities Working Group, and supported by 29 social, academic, political and grassroots leaders and representatives at the international level. The document responds to the question “Why do we speak of Women’s Right to the City?” with 11 central points to ensure the Right to the City of Women.
In this video 10 expert women leaders and activists from around the world who fight for gender equality and the Right to the City explain some of the central themes of the manifesto.
The pandemic further exacerbated the situation of vulnerability experienced by women in the territories. What cities do we need to build and guarantee for an effective Women’s Right to the City?
