STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Transport is not gender-neutral: women and men have different mobility needs and patterns, which transport policies need to acknowledge
  • Inadequate transport systems can restrict women’s access to education, economic opportunities and healthcare
  • The World Bank publications listed below look at the nexus between gender and transport, and explore how to make transport work for women
