When it comes to making decisions about how things happen in our cities, who has the power to make those decisions? Tiffany Muller Myrdahl, a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies and the Urban Studies Program, asks this question along with a host of others in her work and research. From her work with Women Transforming Cities to teaching in the classroom, Tiffany spends a lot of time navigating the inequalities that exist and looking for ways to make spaces and cities more inclusive, particularly for LGBTQ2S people and women. In this episode, Am and Tiffany talk about why this work is necessary and the ways in which Tiffany challenges her students who do this work as well.You can learn more about Women in Cities International, where Tiffany is a board member, by checking out femmesetvilles.org/.Additionally, you can read and download the Metropolis report, "Safety and Public Space: Mapping Metropolitan Gender Policies", here:https://www.metropolis.org/sites/default/files/resources/Mapping_metropolitan_gender_policies_0.pdf
