HERMIDA, Carla et al. Gender and daily mobility in a university community of Cuenca-Ecuador. Estoa [online]. 2023, vol.12, n.23, pp.24-43. ISSN 1390-9274.

The city is not neutral, the right to it, its use and enjoyment by the subjects are conditioned, among other issues, by gender. In the case of women, their daily mobility decisions depend, to a large extent, on personal safety and the role of care. To reflect and delve into the subject, university community in CuencaEcuador was taken as a case study. Two instruments were applied: survey and semi-structured interviews to teachers, administrative staff and students of the institution. The main results indicate that there are differences in daily mobility conditioned by gender. Studies like this warn about factors that inhibit sustainable mobility and contribute to understanding the phenomenon in intermediate Latin American cities.

Keywords : gender; daily mobility; women; sustainable transportation; university.
