URBAN DISCRIMINATION

The gender dimension of the city – Here is an unapproached subject until now in the romanian research in the field of Gender Studies. Is the city a safe and friendly space for women, at macro level (urban politics), at messo level (local planning) or at micro level (everyday practices)? Is the city planned and built also taking into account the needs of women, with their diversity regarding their age, ethnicity, social status, education or health?

Is it important to also make an analys regarding the dynamics of the city from this gendered perspective? In this context, is Bucharest, an european city, capital of Romania, considerate to the inclusion, diversity and equality problems? How can Bucharest be assessed nowadays? Do women find themselves like they deserve in the collective memory of this city? Looking for answers, The Society of Feminist Analyzes AnA (www.anasaf.ro), in partnership with Front Association (www.feminism-romania.ro), composed the project "Urban Discriminations. Gender-sensitive program of active citizenship."

With the occassion of the guide launch "(Non)sexist" city. Gender-sensitive urban discriminations inventory", Victoria Art Center Gallery organizes a connected exhibition, where female artsits intend to question different gender issues that exist in the urban space.

Event made within the project "Urban Discriminations. Gender-sensitive program of active citizenship", a programe funded through the SEE Grants 2009-2014, NGO Fund in Romania.
