Why Do We Need "City for All"?
Poverty rates among women are disproportionately high. Women make up the majority of clientele for municipal services, but policies governing these services ignore the specific issues poor women face.
In Arab-Jewish and multicultural local governments, addressing the needs of women is even more complex, as these needs vary across diverse and marginalized communities.
Women are drastically underrepresented in our municipal governments, holding only 18% of senior municipal positions.
