Roads, Transportation, Mobility & Gender

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

The Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights created this bibliography to provide a guide to the landscape of gendered research on roads, transportation, and mobility. Our goal is to bring together sources useful in thinking about how to rebuild physical infrastructure in postwar countries in ways that will contribute to gender-just sustainable peace. Because the literature explicitly linking gender analysis of roads, transportation, and mobility with postwar settings is still quite sparse, this bibliography casts a wider net.

The sources we have chosen explore issues we think are important to address as part of postwar reconstruction, even though the authors are frequently not focused on postwar contexts at all. Thus, the research herein addresses issues related to: difficulties that women and children face when they live in communities that are inaccessible by main roads and highways; the ways that transportation infrastructure projects are affected by the inclusion or exclusion of gender considerations; and the impacts of policy, culture, and safety on women’s mobility.
