Women and housing: Towards inclusive Cities
This publication explores the complex terrain of diverse women’s unrealized right to adequate housing and the consequent negative implications for urban sustainability. It underlines the often under-acknowledged relationship between diverse women and the home, and it identifies a number of key areas that impede diverse women from enjoying their right to adequate housing. It introduces the
conceptual framework of an intersectional analysis as a gender and diversity-inclusive way to examine and assess housing policies and processes so that the right to adequate housing, protection from forced evictions and sustainable human settlements may one day become a reality for all women and men.
