Join us in exploring transport policy from the perspective of women in Latin America by listening to this amazing podcast episode featuring Laura Ballesteros Mancilla. She is the co-founder of Mujeres en Movimiento – Women in Motion, a network that connects advocates of gender-sensitive mobility across various sectors in Latin America.
Together with Laura, we discuss the violence and underrepresentation faced by women in transport, whether they are commuting or at the decision-making table. Laura's message to all women is that they are not alone and to remember that any resistance they face reflects the importance of the change they seek to realize.
Last but not least, Laura reflects on the journey of Women in Motion and Women Mobilize Women alongside each other since their foundation in 2018 and finds: We've come a long way!
This episode is part of a series of interviews with some of the Remarkable Feminist Voices in Transport 2023, who were awarded by TUMI’s Women Mobilize Women initiative. Tune in!
