    Who’s in charge here? Governance of e-scooters in Stockholm amid the sustainable urban mobility transition2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Innovation is a necessary element to transition towards a more sustainable transport paradigm. Advancements made in electrification and digitalisation are creating new forms of urban mobility which have the potential to reduce the impact of transport and shift modal splits. However, these developments have also been accompanied by new actors, influences, and challenges related to the urban governance process. In order to realise the sustainability benefits which urban settings desire, and innovative forms of technology promise, there is a need for purposive steering – for which policy and regulation are key tools. These themes are explored through a case study of the policy process for e-scooters in Stockholm, Sweden from 2018 to 2022. Guided by theory on sustainability transitions and the role of urban mobility governance, this thesis investigates how new influences are affecting progress towards sustainable mobility objectives. Results are derived from a combination of qualitative methods, including semi-structured interviews, as well as document and media analysis. Analysis suggests that disconnect within formal governmental hierarchies is complicating the agency of the municipality. Despite having similar long-term sustainability goals, communication and cooperation to deal with current challenges are limiting the municipality. Informal networks have also become channels for new forms of influence, with international organisations and city-to city interaction shaping policy discourse. In addition, knowledge is warranting authority for technology advocates of new technologies in the urban mobility sphere. This study ultimately demonstrates how new influences are complicating the municipality’s ability to work towards its own sustainability objectives for urban mobility. There is a need for improved collaboration and transparency with new actors, as well as a revolution in how the municipal level responds to, and sets the guidelines for a future in which urban mobility is truly sustainable.

    En undersökning av miljöbedömning för RUFS 2010.2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    RUFS 2010 är en regionplan för Stockholmsregionen, men utgör även det regionala utvecklingsprogrammet (RUP). Inför planens fastställande 2010 upprättades en miljöbedömning för planen. Regionplanekontoret hade huvudansvaret för framtagandet av planen men miljöbedömningen gjordes av konsulter.

     

    Syftet med denna studie är att beskriva och analysera processen för framtagandet av miljöbedömningen och interaktionen mellan olika aktörer. Studien baseras på intervjuer. Intervjuerna är gjorda med aktörer som deltagit i framtagandet av MKB för RUFS. Samtidigt har olika dokumentstudier kompletterat intervjuerna för att komplettera deras beskrivningar av processen. Avgränsningen av arbetet är från Länsstyrelsens beslut att upprätta en MKB för RUP/RUFS 2010 tills den vann laga kraft.

     

    Miljöbedömningsprocessen följde en ganska traditionell uppbyggnad. Processen utfördes internt på konsultfirman och kommunicerades med beställare från Regionplanekontoret. De hade delat upp arbetet i olika delar och utgick från ett försök att forma de nationella miljömålen till övergripande bedömningsgrunder för att sedan göra miljöbedömningen. I Miljöbalken (MB), i Plan- och bygglagen (PBL) samt i Förordningen (1998:905) om miljökonsekvensbeskrivningar finns reglerna för när en miljöbedömning krävs för planer och program. I RUFS 2010 var det den regionala utvecklingsplanen som formellt ledde till att en bedömning var nödvändig. Hade det enbart varit en regionplan hade det inte funnits ett krav på miljöbedömning. Att de två planerna var sammanslagna gjorde att processen blev komplicerad

     

    Det var första gången en miljöbedömning gjordes av en regional plan i Sverige. Detta ledde i sin tur till att arbetet med miljöbedömningen var sökande, eftersom det inte fanns någon erfarenhet hur arbetet skulle läggas upp. Inledningsvis kan processen men miljöbedömningen beskrivas som karakteriseras av ett "trial and error" för de som deltog i processen, i att hitta en lämplig nivå och inriktning. Arbetet skedde också under tidspress. Miljöbedömningen hamnade därför alltid ett steg efter planarbetet, utan att en iterativ process skedde mellan arbetet med utarbetandet av planen och miljöbedömningen. Processen saknade delvis transparens. Arbetet med MKB för RUFS 2010 kan beskrivas som en lärandeprocess för inblandade aktörer.

     

    Studien visar att det är viktigt att ta lärdom av detta inför nästa omgång av RUFS. De olika uppfattningarna bland aktörerna om vad en miljöbedömning är och hur den ska göras måste tidigt klargöras i arbetet. Miljöbedömningen kan inte upprättas för sent i processen. Att ta vara på lärdomarna från den här omgången kan göra att processen löper smidigare och att liknande problem i arbetet undviks.

    En undersökning av miljöbedömning för RUFS 20102011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Every plan and program decided on by an authority or municipality, where the environmental impact can be considerable, must be environmentally assessed according to Environmental Code, the Planning and Building Act (PBA) and the Regulation on Environmental Impact Assessment.The purpose of this study is to examine the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for The Region Development Plan for the Stockholm Region, RUFS 2010. The plan was approved by at that time the Regional Planning Office (Regionplanekontoret), which procured the process by consultants. RUFS 2010 includes two merged plans ie. a regional Development Plan (RUP) and the Regional Spatial Plan for Stockholm. It was necessary to establish an environmental assessment of RUP, but not for the regional plan. The merge between the two plans made the process complicated. There was need to explore the process, because it has not previously been establish before in Sweden.

    The EIA process followed a fairly traditional structure. The process was conducted internally at the consulting and communicated with clients from Region Planning Office. The Region Planning Office had divided the work into separate parts and the work was based on an attempt to shape the national environmental goals to the overall criteria and then make the environmental assessment.

    The EIA had its focus on searching for information, and initially it was a bit of a "trial and error” process for the actors. Operators did not know how the work would be organized, and two consultants were involved to manage the process. The results of the study have been established through various interviews with the actors involved. It was clear that different stakeholders had different views regarding the process. In order to complement the interviews literature studies have been made. The study is based on research in the area of urban planning and work of EIA in different forms.

    A vulnerable time frame was difficult for the actors as well due to stated deadlines. By that time, the process was under time pressure. The EIA was shorthanded without an iterative process between the plan and environmental assessment. The most striking discovery in this essay was the lack of transparency between the actors. That made it difficult for the actors involved to find an appropriate level and direction.

    It was important to examine RUFS process, because it can be the basis for the next version of RUFS. The approach to the environmental assessment of RUFS is something that needs to be further discussed and clarified, before the commencement of the plan. There are basic questions that all stakeholders need to clear out and to make a common view on the process. It may enable the process to run smoothly and that similar problems are avoided.

    Lonely Places: Investigating the impact of environmental factors on loneliness and social isolation2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Loneliness is increasingly understood as a significant physical and mental health concern in modern society. Yet studies of the subject typically characterise it as resulting entirely from subjective individual characteristics and circumstances. The impact of broader living environments is understudied, leaving disciplines such as urban planning with little guidance as to how environmental intervention strategies might best ameliorate loneliness. This paper uses Stockholm as a case study for asking two place-based questions: (1) what can our knowledge of loneliness risk factors tell us about the possible spatial distribution of loneliness in cities? (2) what influence does the built environment itself have on loneliness? An abductive approach is used to test different ways in which urban planners might map risk of loneliness and social isolation in different neighbourhoods. The results shed light on spatial segregation as a potential contributing factor, with implications for planning practice.

    The Playground Project: This project is dividid in three main topics, working with the topic and the meaning of play, the form and the design of the ground, everything comes together in the final project.2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Playing is the dominant activity in children's daily life, but is the playground still the place where children have their first encounter with societal roles, norms and values of today’s society, through the act of playing? The playground functions as the place where children are forced to educate themselves, in learning to develop, to make decisions, to solve problems, and to regulate emotions. They look for risks in order to test and explore their physical limits. In this research, I will be focusing on the existing playground in the street of my childhood home aiming to gain understanding as to whether or not the playground still fits the needs of children. Is there still space to discover the basic guidelines of social behaviour and finding out one's personal limits? Looking at today’s playground, I see an over-designed, completely protected, safe-in-the-grid play area which leaves no space for one’s own interpretation and imagination and is not at all a suitable space for testing out your own limits. The play objects are already placed in a concrete form and can only be used in one specific way, eliminating any space for personal initiative. I am curious about how these playground designs arose, and whether there is any kind of communication with children about their needs and desires in the context of play. Which parties decide where and how playgrounds are built in the urban landscape, and why playgrounds are not connected with their urban surroundings, but instead form separated and isolated entities. This detached space often does not meet the demands of the children, resulting in them abandoning the designated playing area, and finding play areas of their own, including streets and abandoned buildings or wastelands, sometimes close to traffic, where they chose to play instead. Making the playground as safe as possible by placing the different kind of play equipment behind a fence is actually resulting in its opposite safety in that the children are looking for a different kind of place to play freely. Aiming to answer these questions, I studied the work of Aldo van Eyck and Bruno Munari, both architects who worked on playgrounds and used primary shapes in urban architecture. I am also focussing on the work of Mariana Brussoni, who writes about the importance of the element of risk in playing, and how this affects a child’s development and social behaviour. For this research, I am working closely together with the municipality and NIJHA Playground Equipment Factory to get a better understanding of the origins of playgrounds. Adding to this research, I conducted many conversations with children from different cities and neighbourhoods, with the aim to find out what the perfect play area is for children and how that fits in the urban landscape, or more specifically, in my own street.

    “Here it is, you can experience it, you can ride around”: Bicycle study tours as experiential education2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In a time of growing awareness of the climate change crisis, cities are revisiting their policies and practices to align with sustainability aspirations.   Transportation and cycling policies offer a way forward. On visits to best practice cities, policymakers, practitioners and decision-makers learn from local experts in an effort to take ideas home and implement them. The activity of finding out about policies, known as policy transfer, can be explored as a type of experiential learning when it takes place as a bicycle study tour. The policy transfer framework provided by Dolowitz & Marsh (1996, 2000, 2012) and the experiential learning theory of Kolb (2015) can serve as starting points in exploring how policies are transferred during learning activities and interpersonal interactions that involve hosts and visitors during bicycle study tours. The case study of Amsterdam, which has over 500km of separate cycle lanes and 53% of all daily trips made by bicycle (van der Horst, 2014), offers a working, observable example of an alternative future for cities wanting to change their transportation situation. More than 150 groups visit the city annually to find out about its bicycle culture and underlying policies (Sargentini, 2017).  While policy transfer and learning in Amsterdam may be initiated by visitors that take steps to travel to the city, the local hosting situation is made up of different institutions and actors that interact in various ways. Some attention to the governance of urban cycling in Amsterdam to understand the role of the private sector and the responsibilities of different organizations and actors can partially respond to Oldenziel’s (2016) call for research on this topic throughout Europe. Interviews and document research about the hosting situation in Amsterdam reveal several players with varied backgrounds, a rich variety of learning activities, and a loosely governed hosting landscape. Recommendations are made for Amsterdam institutions, hosts, visitors and future research.

    Bike Kitchens: Spaces for convivial tools2018In: Journal of Cleaner Production, ISSN 0959-6526, E-ISSN 1879-1786, Vol. 197, no 2, p. 1676-1683Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is currently a marked interest in do-it-yourself culture and sharing of skills, tools and spaces, manifesting in maker spaces, tool libraries and open workshops for remaking furniture, electronics, bicycles or clothing. This paper explores the phenomenon of 'Bike Kitchens', do-it-yourself bicycle repair studios run on a non-profit basis. The Bike Kitchen in Malmo, Sweden, is used as a case study involving interviews with key persons and users of that Bicycle Kitchen and on-site observations. The exploration of the Bike Kitchen is situated in a wider theoretical discussion around technology in relation to degrowth. Two theoretical perspectives are used, firstly, lllich's (1973) notion of tools for conviviality, meaning tools that enable citizens to reconquer practical knowledge for autonomy and creativity rather than being confined to commercial relations, and secondly, forms of non-capitalist relations. It is argued that the Bike Kitchen is an example of democratisation of technology in practice a social innovation to make low-cost technology, tools and know-how easily available to anyone. The concept of the Bike Kitchen is a way to develop and cultivate conviviality, i.e. a social and spatial infrastructure - a space for convivial tools.

    Dela är det nya äga2015Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    En knäckfråga i den rika delen av världen är hur man kan minska materiell konsumtion och samtidigt behålla god livskvalitet. De senaste åren har intresset ökat för att dela på saker – att ha tillgång till varor eller tjänster snarare än att köpa och äga enskilt – något som brukar beskrivas som kollaborativ konsumtion. Men vad innebär detta? Hur kan det se ut? I dokumentärfilmen Dela är det nya äga får vi träffa människor som på olika sätt delar på saker och utrymmen i tre olika städer: Malmö, Barcelona och London. Vi träffar också olika experter som beskriver hur kollaborativ konsumtion fungerar och hur detta kan tänkas utvecklas i framtiden.

    Environmental justice: new fuel to the debate on planning for sustainable development2004In: Planning for Sustainable Development: the practice and potential of Environmental Assessment / [ed] Hilding-Rydevik, T., Hlökk Theodórsdóttir, A., Stockholm: Nordregio , 2004, p. 69-80Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This contribution takes its starting point from a Nordic study on planning for sustainable development, which highlights that the debatein this area seems to have settled around a uniform picture of thesustainable society, and that this is therefore something that needs to becritically examined. The mainstream way of planning for sustainabledevelopment does not adequately address the issue of dependency orrelationships with development in distant locations. In this chapter it isargued that an environmental justice perspective could add new depth tothe debate on planning for sustainable development. This is done throughhighlighting just how different social groups, mainly based on income,ethnicity or gender, are exposed to, generate and interpret environmental qualities and risks. In the Nordic debate on planning for sustainable development such social justice and power-related aspects have in general not been studied or taken into account. This contribution is thus acall for research in this field, particularly as the populations of the Nordic countries are becoming increasingly heterogeneous.

    Hur förhåller sig dagens planering för hållbar utveckling till samhällets ökande etniska och socioekonomiska mångfald? Karin Bradley har i sin doktorsavhandling undersökt vilka livsstilar och normer som understöds i planering för hållbar stadsutveckling. Vilka passar in och vilka passar inte in? Vilka bilder av miljövänligt liv dominerar? Och hur kan man skapa förutsättningar för en mer miljörättvis planering?

Karin Bradley diskuterar den dominerande bilden av den hållbara staden och pekar på strömningar där viljan att skapa och förvalta gemensamt, gör-det-själv-kulturer, lokal ekonomi och inte minst synen på tillväxt, ställer nya frågor om hur man kan planera för hållbara samhällen.

    Just Environments: Politicising Sustainable Urban Development2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

     

    European cities are becoming increasingly multicultural and diverse in terms of lifestyles and socioeconomic conditions. However, in planning for sustainable urban development, implications of this increased diversity and possibly conflicting perspectives are seldom considered.

    The aim of this thesis is to explore dimensions of justice and politics in sustainable urban development by studying inclusionary/exclusionary effects of discursive power of official strategies for eco-friendly living on the one hand and everyday lifestyles on the other, in ethnically and socially diverse areas.

    Two case studies have been conducted, one in a city district of Stockholm, Sweden, and one in an area of Sheffield, England. The empirical material consists of interviews with residents, interviews with planners and officials and an analysis of strategic planning documents. The case study in Stockholm illustrated the prevalence of a dominant discourse among residents in which Swedishness is connected with environmental responsibility in the form of tidiness, recycling and familiarity with nature. In Sheffield there are more competing and parallel environmental discourses. The mainstream British environmental discourse and sustainability strategies are being criticised from Muslim as well as green radical perspectives. The mainstream discourse is criticised for being tokenistic in its focus on gardening, tidiness, recycling and eco-consumption, and hence ignoring deeper unsustainable societal structures. This can be interpreted as a postpolitical condition, in which there is a consensus around “what needs to be done,” such as more recycling, but in which difficult societal problems and conflicting perspectives on these are not highlighted.

    In the thesis it is argued that the strategies for urban sustainability are underpinned by Swedish/British middle-class norms, entailing processes of (self-)disciplining and normalisation of the Other into well-behaving citizens. It is argued that an appreciation of the multiple and others’ ways of saving natural resources would make the sustainability strategies more attuned to social and cultural diversity as well as more environmentally progressive. Finally, the importance of asserting the political in sustainability strategies is stressed, highlighting the organisation of society and possible alternative socioenvironmental futures.

    Open-source urbanism: Creating, multiplying and managing urban commons2015In: Footprint, ISSN 1875-1504, E-ISSN 1875-1490, Vol. 9, no 16, p. 91-108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Within contemporary architecture and urbanism there is marked interest in urban commons. This paper explores the creation of temporary urban commons, or, more specifically, what can be called ‘open-source urbanism’. Citing two practices – urban commons initiated by Atelier d’architecture autogérée in Paris, and Park(ing) Day initiated by San Francisco-based Rebar – I argue that these practices can be understood as open-source urbanism since their initiators act as open-source programmers, constructing practice manuals to be freely copied, used, developed and shared, thus producing self-managed commons. Although this tradition of ‘commoning’ is not new, it is currently being reinvented with the use of digital technologies. Combining Elinor Ostrom’s analysis of self-managed natural resource commons with Yochai Benkler’s assertion that commons-based peer production constitutes a ‘third mode of production’ that lies beyond capitalism, socialism and their blends, I argue that open-source urbanism critiques both government and privately-led urban development by advancing a form of postcapitalist urbanism.

    Planning for eco-friendly living in diverse societies2009In: Local Environment: the International Journal of Justice and Sustainability, ISSN 1354-9839, E-ISSN 1469-6711, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 347-363Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish cities are becoming increasingly multicultural and diverse in terms of lifestylesand socioeconomic conditions. However, cultural and social diversity is seldomconsidered when planning for sustainable urban development. This paper examinesplanning for more eco-friendly living in the increasingly diverse population of a citydistrict of Stockholm. The study reveals the prevalence of a discourse in which aSwedish identity carries environmental responsibility in the form of tidiness, recyclingand familiarity with nature. It is argued that planning for urban sustainability isunderpinned by Swedish middle-class norms, indirectly entailing processes of (self-)disciplining and transforming the other (foreign and/or troublesome dwellers) intowell-behaving Swedes. A clearer definition of the environmental improvementintended, its goals and target groups is needed. Finally, an appreciation of the multipleways we can save natural resources would make urban planning policies more attunedto social and cultural diversity as well as more environmentally progressive.

    The Theming of Urban Landscapes2005In: Journal of Nordregio, ISSN 1650-5891, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 18-21Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, it has become increasingly common to theme new housing areas or even entire towns. A recurrent theme is the ‘traditional’ European small town, sometimes with nationalistic overtones. This article explores the phenomena of theming and discusses what the demand for nostalgic small town life stands for.

    Miljörättvisa: ett nytt perspektiv i svensk planering2007In: PLAN – Tidskrift för Samhällplanering, ISSN 0032-0560, Vol. 3Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Den senaste tiden har miljö- och klimatfrågor varit ett hett ämne i samhällsdebatten. Framförallt diskuteras hur växthuseffekten kan hanteras och hur system för utsläppsrätter bäst organiseras. Sällan ställs frågor om vilka som orsakar miljöproblem och vilka som drabbas av dem. Och vem som definierar vad som betraktas som akuta miljöproblem. Detta är frågor som uppmärksammas i forskning om miljörättvisa – ett fält på frammarsch i Sverige.

    Green utopianism: Perspectives, politics and micro-practices2014Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Utopian thought and experimental approaches to societal organization have been rare in the last decades of planning and politics. Instead, there is a widespread belief in ecological modernization, that sustainable societies can be created within the frame of the current global capitalist world order by taking small steps such as eco-labeling, urban densification, and recycling. However, in the context of the current crisis in which resource depletion, climate change, uneven development, and economic instability are seen as interlinked, this belief is increasingly being questioned and alternative developmental paths sought. This collection demonstrates how utopian thought can be used in a contemporary context, as critique and in exploring desired futures. The book includes theoretical perspectives on changing global socio-environmental relationships and political struggles for alternative development paths, and analyzes micro-level practices in co-housing, alternative energy provision, use of green space, transportation, co-production of urban space, peer-to-peer production and consumption, and alternative economies. It contributes research perspectives on contemporary green utopian practices and strategies, combining theoretical and empirical analyses to spark discussions of possible futures.

    Hur gör vi samhällsplaneringen meningsfull igen?2005In: Plan: tidskrift för samhällsplanering, ISSN 0032-0560, no 1Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Samhällsplaneringen är på många sätt en produkt av modernismen och intimt förknippad med välfärdsstaten och folkhemsbygget. Därmed också sagt att den är i kris. Förutsättningarna för planering har förändrats så radikalt under de senaste decennierna att det inte längre går att hålla fast vid gamla mål och medel. Planeringen ändras visserligen i praxis men vi som forskar i ämnet och har i uppdrag att utbilda nästa generation planerare måste också försöka dra upp riktlinjer för en fungerande och angelägen samhällsplanering för i morgon. I denna artikel efterlyser vi en planerare som – till skillnad från gängse praxis – är både proaktiv och inriktad på att värna de eller det marginaliserade.

    The sharing economy as the commons of the 21st century2017In: Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society, ISSN 1752-1378, E-ISSN 1752-1386, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 231-247Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article aims to make a contribution to the debate on how contemporary collaborative commons, as part of the wider sharing economy, can be understood and supported. Three cases of contemporary commons are analysed: a DIY bike repair studio, a pop-up home office concept and Wikipedia. The article shows how the design principles developed for governing natural resource commons are only partly applicable to these contemporary commons. It also illustrates the differences in these types of commons in terms of the nature of the resource being shared, scarcity, barriers to entry and how rules are formulated and upheld.

    Community repair in the circular economy: Fixing more than stuff2022In: Local Environment: the International Journal of Justice and Sustainability, ISSN 1354-9839, E-ISSN 1469-6711, p. 1-17Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the circular economy discourse it is stressed that products ought to be repairable and that repair work is assumed to be growing. However, repair can be organised and performed in different ways – by corporate entities, independent repairers, laypersons and communities. Some corporations are integrating repair and maintenance into their offering, while simultaneously restricting consumers to open, repair or modify their products. In opposition to such developments, there is a movement for “right to repair”, which works for consumers’ legal rights to repair and modify products, pushing for the free availability of spare parts and manuals. Recent years have also seen a growth of repair cafés and other forms of DIY community repair spaces. This paper explores the discourses of DIY community repair through two Swedish case studies – an NGO-led nationwide repair campaign and a local government initiative of open DIY repair spaces. Our case studies show how DIY community repair works towards enabling all, particularly marginalised groups, to participate and live well in a low-impact future. In contrast to the mainstream circular economy discourse, the purpose of community repair is not only about repairing broken stuff and reducing waste, but about building social relations and practicing non-consumerist forms of citizenship. By elucidating these different perspectives on repair – who is to perform it, with what skills and for what purposes – we highlight how the transition to future, more circular economies, can be enacted and steered in ways that allow for different roles and powers for citizen-consumers.

    Violence, women and planning2004In: Journal of Nordregio, ISSN 1650-5891, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 18-20Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    During the spring of this year numerous reports appeared in the Swedish media concerning women being attacked and raped in public places. Does planning have anything to do with this? Around the world, women often avoid walking alone in cities at night or feel insecure when they do so. The mere presence of an unaccompanied woman in the city is, in certain situations, seen as an invitation to sexual harassment, robbery or rape. In some cities, such as Mexico City or Bombay, this has led to the establishment of train cars restricted to women only. In this way our gender determines our movements, our fears, whether we can walk alone at night, whether we can take the shortcut through the woods or whether we are restricted to the home and to private spaces.
