A Companion to Transport, Space and Equity

Edited by Robin Hickman, Beatriz Mella Lira, Moshe Givoni and Karst Geurs

With social inequity in urban spaces becoming an increasing concern in our modern world, The Elgar Companion to Transport, Space and Equity explores the relationships between transport and social equity. Transport systems and infrastructure investment can lead to inequitable travel behaviours, with certain socio-demographic groups using particular parts of the transport system and accessing particular activities and opportunities.

Chapter 11: Working women and unequal mobilities in the urban periphery

Eda Beyazit and Ceyda Sungur


Eda Beyazit and Ceyda Sungur explore gendered mobilities in the periphery of Istanbul, within a capitalist-based and patriarchal society. Higher paid work in central areas is often not possible for females due to the lengthy journeys from suburban areas, cost of travel and household responsibilities; whereas males are able to choose higher paid jobs from a wider geographical area across the city. Poorly educated females are particularly disadvantaged in the poor periphery, experiencing higher levels of walking to work and use of company shuttle services, often to lower paid employment.
