to our feminist design collective
The built environment surrounds our everyday lives, and the topics of women’s safety and inclusivity have never been more prevalent.
Following the murder of Sarah Everard in March 2020 - coinciding with the UN survey that 97% of the UK’s 18-24 year olds had experienced sexual harrassment or violence - the discussion around women’s safety in the built environment has been popularised both by built environment professionals and the general public. However, there is still a disconnect between this wider discourse and physical design application.
HerCollective was created to aid in that translation - and explore the constraints of successful solutions - within the UK’s design and development.
