Note for Equality N° 25: Who takes care of dependant population in the city? Urban politics and women’s economic autonomy
The achievement of women's economic autonomy, their greater participation in the labor market, their access to incomes of their own and an equitable distribution of time use, is linked to an equal access to services and infrastructure of the cities. This, constitutes an important part of the physical and spatial support of the daily life of men and women. For women, the quality and the improvement in the frequencies and the costs of transport are particularly important in the choice of occupation, when they must make it compatible with their family obligations.
