At the end of the 60’s the so called Urban Social Movements were groups that coming from different locally rooted entities or associations, asked for new approaches to planning that meant taking care of people’s needs and memories. As a result of the experience that came from the gendered division of work, duties and spaces women had a deep and broad knowledge of the urban circumstances. At the very beginning of the Urban Social Movements in Barcelona we could find women’s meetings where they asked for better condition of living, claiming for better and safer public spaces, more public facilities for daily life and better public transport, all of these with the aim to allow everyone, but specially women, to conciliated public, personal and family life.
