Research

One of the aims of Make Space for Girls is to disseminate the research and information that is already exists about teenagers and public space.

There are already plenty of detailed examinations of the ways that girls are crowded out of parks and equipment, and how their needs are mostly ignored, yet these haven’t received the attention they should.

Our page of case studies gives three European examples of parks and public spaces designed with girls in mind.

In addition, we’ve put together a downloadable document which outlines what we know about the ways in which girls do and don’t use public spaces, and what might be done about it.
