Gender and the Built Environment - A Resource for Teaching and Learning


This website explores the temporary town for 35,000 women that was the 1995 NGO Forum, and offers resources for teaching and learning about gender and the built environment.

The Forum ran parallel to the Fourth UN World Conference on Women.

Looking at the built form of that town, and the activities within it, many of the issues facing women around the globe encounter in their everyday lives can be seen.
