Integrating Gender Mainstreaming into U.S. Planning Practice 

November-December 2019

Men and women have different wants and needs when it comes to built environments, public services, and amenities — and planning interventions may not meet all those differing needs, especially those of women.  This PAS Memo explores the concept of gender mainstreaming, used in the European Union to ensure gender-equitable outcomes, and explains how it can — and why it should — be integrated into U.S. planning practice.
