Urban mobility and gender in Tunisia: What place for women in transport in 2017?

22.02.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

Tunisia is a country that has pursued since independence a progressive policy in the field of women’s rights, and has established an image of modernity through the importance given to the status of women. Tunisian women have been able to acquire many rights affirming the principle of equality between men and women before the law. But despite these advances, and as everywhere in the world, women remain victims of daily violence, and in the professional sectors, decision-making positions remain mostly occupied by men, which pushes us to question the place that is actually given to women in society.

This article explores the status of women in the transport sector and shows how this sector remains predominantly masculine in Tunisia.
