#4 Can A Street Be Sexist? Sexism and the City with Jan Fran

    • Places & Travel

Female bodies used to sell things. Statues celebrating men. Gendered street and shop names. These are the backdrops of our cities. But how much do we pay attention to them, and does it actually make an impact on gender roles? Can a street be sexist? Kenneth Thor and Dr Pamela Salen think so. Kenneth Thor was so frustrated by sexist advertising at his local shopping centre that he launched a viral petition to have it taken down. Dr Pamela Salen, a gender researcher, analysed an 'unsafe' part of Melbourne and found it rife with subliminal sexist messaging. In this episode, we're discussing if our streets can impact the way we see gender. Guests: Kenneth Thor, Dr Pamela Salen, Dr Lauren Rosewarne, Dr Nicole Kalms + If you've enjoyed this episode please subscribe, rate and leave an honest review on Apple Podcasts (iTunes) or your favourite podcast app. Your ratings and reviews help others to discover the podcast, and we're so thankful for your support. ++ To learn more about Plan International Australia's work head to the website.
