MISSION STATEMENT – a community of practice and public policy program on Gender and Transport, addressing the problems of women, particularly Southern women and girls facing the everyday reality of gender inequality in the transport sector. The program deals with specific problems in specific places in Africa, Asia and Latin America, both cities and in very poor outlying rural areas where safe and fair access is an enormous problem of day-to-day life, often falling especially hard on women and young girls.

GENDER, EQUITY & TRANSPORT FORUM 2.0. An open, self-organized multi-media toolset, update and extension of the original Dgroups site. Designed to complement, work in parallel with and bring in new capacities to the original listserv. (See below.) Perpetually under construction – feedback and ideas solicited.
