THE INFLUENCE OF THE DUTCH MOBILITY POLICY ON THE EMANCIPATION PROCESS FOR WOMEN AND MAN

INVLOED VAN SVV-MAATREGELEN OP DE EMANCIPATOIRE ONTWIKKELING VAN VROUWEN EN MANNEN

In the literature on emancipation and mobility it is often assumed that mobility policy impedes the possibilities of women to acquire equal opportunities to participate in paid employment and in activities outside the house. It is said that too much emphasis is put on the use of traffic and public transport system by men and that, therefore, the demands women have in using the transport system are not net. A literature research has been carried out to determine the influence of the Dutch mobility policy on the emancipation process in the Netherlands. One conclusion of the study is that mobility is just one of the many aspects influencing emancipation. Another finding is that the effects of the mobility measures are not as impeding on the emancipation process as is assumed in current literature. Only few policy measures aim to decrease the use of the car directly. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 871533.
