A piece about gender balance in public space

Women and men are very different in public space.
These differences are due to the social roles assigned to each gender in our society.
Because of their different positions of power, it is mainly women whose freedom of movement is limited.
Public space can quickly become a place of discrimination and danger for non-compliance with these roles.
What would a room look like in which these roles are lifted?
How to overcome social and cultural differences to make public space more feminine?
