Several feminist movements have identified and documented it: the city and architecture, until now mainly shaped by men for men, produce spaces that are more difficult to appropriate and inhabit by all people. This spatial inequity helps to reinforce existing gender discrimination. The right to the city is differentiated and restricted for a variety of the population.

The exhibition Bodies in the city: architectures, feminisms and constructed spaces attempts to show that a feminist approach to space, in its work methodology as well as in its design and production, can participate in initiating a bifurcation towards places more open to the appropriation of bodies in their diversity.
