“Confronting the Sexist City” is a study that helps reimagine our cities and understand how we can create better opportunities for women, girls, and other gender-diverse individuals in the public realm. This first exploration involved a group of participants traveling along a 2.2km stretch of Queen Street in Toronto, documenting their range of emotions and experiences, all organized through three themes: comfort, safety and vibrancy.

The report compiles the results and patterns using tools such as spatial mapping, drawings and photographs. This initial research sets the base for further exploration and applications to the urban design and planning practice.
