Intersectionality and privilege are crucial in feminist urban planning, aiming to weave diverse identities into city design. We will explore the connections between work, caregiving, family dynamics, gender, and mobility, to develop resilient and inclusive urban models. Addressing structural discrimination in Brussels is vital. Our speaker, a Chilean migrant in Italy and Belgium, brings a unique perspective as a queer woman, feminist, and activist. Her role in EU communications highlights the importance of digital strategies in feminist advocacy, crucial for Generation Z’s vision of transformation.
