This work explores gendered exclusion from public space. The research focus is on the lived experience of women in Manchester, UK, and data was collected via a series of walking interviews. Women discuss the impact of street harassment and everyday sexism alongside coping strategies that they develop to enable them to claim their place in the city. There are also examples of how policy decisions and poor design can entrench and amplify gendered exclusion. The chapter concludes with some examples of creative resistance to misogyny. An intersectional approach is taken, which acknowledges differences between women, and the value and importance of diversity and equality in public space is asserted throughout.
