All around the world, the transport sector has historically been overwhelmingly male dominated, with culturally established gender roles limiting women’s participation in the sector. In Europe, the number of women in the sector comes in at only around 22% (or 14% for land transport exclusively) as of 2016; in Latin America, that percentage drops to an average below 11% (as of 2015). Yet the transportation and mobility sector are cross-cutting, providing essential services for those who live in cities. As women represent 66% of public transport users, why should they be less a part of decision-making in the sector than men?
