I wonder what kind of turnout a more general conference on women and planning would get in Jerusalem? It's certainly a topic that has received a fair amount of attention elsewhere in the world. Sexual harassment is, by nature, a "sexy" topic and it may be relatively easy to generate interest and activism around it. By contrast, topics such as "trip-chaining" and mixed-use development as a factor in "gender mainstreaming" might not be capable of mobilizing the female masses -- especially when those masses are too exhausted after putting their kids to bed to go to a conference. (The aforementioned gathering at the Municipality took place after my usual bedtime.) I've heard mothers in my neighborhood say they have too many children to ever consider giving up their cars, no matter what kind of bus service might be available to them. I know there are women who find everyday life in a car-oriented neighborhood very frustrating, but it never reaches the point of talking openly about the specific architectural features and planning policies that make their lives difficult.
Subsequent to the conference, I threw together a primitive slideshow on my pet peeve -- the front-loading garage or "snout house" that creates a conspicuously hostile environment for women, children -- for anyone, really. The text is in Hebrew (can't vouch for its quality) but the images speak for themselves.
