Women: Transforming Leadership?

We are women from many different backgrounds and lifestyles. We make contributions every day and face specific barriers while we do so. Although gains have been made toward achieving gender equality, many of us still struggle to live free of violence, have our work valued, and our voices heard. As a result, many of us experience the city differently than men.
