Even with recent gains in female representation in fields like architecture and city government, the fact remains that the city, as we know it today, has been designed and shaped primarily by men. By bringing women’s voices to the forefront of the urban discussion, the Women Led Cities Initiative aims to achieve a greater level of equity in urban planning and design - both bottom-up and top-down - and start conversations about developing feminist city policy towards greater equality for all people in cities. 

The Women Led Cities Initiative is a project of THINK.urban and Founder/Director Katrina Johnston-Zimmerman, in partnership with Little Giant Creative, a Philadelphia-based marketing and branding agency.

The Women Led Cities Initiative is proudly sponsored by the the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Our fiscal sponsor is the Lindy Institute for Urban Innovation at Drexel University.
