« inCities is a network that aims to support and articulate initiatives in favour of safer and more inclusive cities and urban spaces for women.

We are afraid to occupy spaces, to use our cities.That is where the network takes place: we want to raise awareness about the issue, articulate debates and workshops, collect data and conduct research, create connections, support interesting initiatives and act on public policies to change Latin American cities into more inclusive and safer urban environments for all women. »
