‘A gender equal society would be one where the word ‘gender’ does not exist: where everyone can be themselves’
– Gloria Steinem
In October 2014 Gender And The City was founded – a multi-author blog that discusses a variety of subjects through a gender lens. There is so much to be said on gender inequality and we intend for this blog to give people a voice on these issues.
Gender And The City is a feminist, intersectional and inclusive website which edits, promotes and publishes the writing of young people, students, recent graduates and beyond. The articles express the complex ways in which gender affects different areas of our daily lives – from sport and politics to reproductive rights and LGBTQ+ issues. Our authors are supported by a dedicated team of editors who feedback on their writing and help them to develop their skills.
Authors are encouraged to explore issues relevant to their own lives and all forms of media are welcome. Gender And The City does not propagate one viewpoint – we aim to encompass a range of opinions and ideas. We only ask one thing of you: please respect the views of others. Pass your opinion – disagree, by all means – however, please be respectful.
Gender is one of the most loaded words in the English language. It is not easy to define, it is not a simple concept to understand and there is no single consensus on what it may entail. We intend on joining in this conversation and we hope that you are ready to engage and discuss these important issues with us too.
