This was a great companion piece to the chapter of Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men I’d listened to the day before. That had drawn my attention to the rebuilding projects after a couple of natural disasters which had neglected to design kitchens into the homes they built. This happened twice. Because women weren’t involved and kitchens, in those cultures, are a woman’s domain.
I also found some of these facts, mentioned in the same chapter disturbing.
This podcast episode highlights some of the similar concerns - public transport, accessibility and safety - from a disability perspective. And it is very well explained.
We have to get better at this.
