    Safe Tip In

This document unpacks the elements of a city that places the economics and ethics of care at the centre. The framework addresses a range of dimensions of city life from the perspective of women. Safetipin’s work over the past decade has focused on designing and planning safer and more inclusive spaces, with a focus on mobility for women, using a data-driven approach. This approach has generated robust datasets that have resulted in interventions in cities across India and other cities in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
The framework builds upon the learning from these projects and research to propose a comprehensive approach towards the gender transformation of our cities. Caroline Moser argues that gender empowerment is different from gender transformation. Gender empowerment can remove immediate inequalities, but it does not “necessarily destabilize wider structural inequalities”. Gender transformation challenges structural inequalities as it is an “inherently political act".
