The goal of this crowdfunding is to cover the expenses of the English edition and printing of the guide Women Working. Urban Assessment Guide from a Gender Perspective, elaborated by Col·lectiu Punt 6. This guide has been already published in Catalan and Spanish, but several English-speaking groups and organizations have requested the guide in English.

Origin of this project

Since 2005 Col·lectiu Punt 6 has been feeding its urban knowledge with the shared experiences of more than 1,000 women participating in more than a hundred workshops, participatory processes and activist initiatives to improve the everyday environments of their neighborhoods.

The motivation behind the elaboration of this guide is to provide women with the collective knowledge to analyze their neighborhoods from a gender perspective, and to encourage autonomy and ownership in the betterment of their neighborhoods.

Women usually have a better understanding of what goes on in their neighborhood, of the needs of the community and of the things that must be done to make it a better place. This occurs because, in spite of their involvement in paid productive work, in many regions of the world, women are still in charge of the majority of domestic and care work, accumulating double or triple working shifts. Therefore, women possess crucial knowledge to describe the everyday life of the environments, which we inhabit and can help transmit not only their needs and wishes but also those of children, young people and the elderly with whom they live.

This guide is a women’s empowerment tool that fosters women’s active participation in urban transformations. It is a tool to provide visibility to women’s experiences in the planning field, but also to question the sexual division of work and how the urban configuration has perpetuated this division. This guide can also be used to reclaim living environments where domestic and care tasks are socially shared and valued.

We want women’s groups and organizations, that wish to participate in urban transformations and in the physical and social betterment of their environments, to be able to use this guide in their neighborhoods, towns, or cities.

With your support we will be able to publish this guide in English, expand its use, and foster more participation of women in urban planning processes.

How we'll allocate your contributions

We'll use your contributions to pay the revision of the English version, the adaptation of the graphic design to the English version, printing, ISBN cost, taxes, crowdfunding platforms’ fee and mailing. Once collected the requested amount we will not have benefits, only the needed to cover the expenses.

About your rewards

We will start sending the rewards once all the money has been collected and the crowdfunding campaign is closed. If the reward is the book in English, we will send it once it is printed, approximately a month after the crowdfunding campaign is closed.


The graphic design group needs a week to adapt the English version to the existing design of the guide. Comanegra is the publisher that has produced the Catalan and Spanish version and will also be in charge of publishing the English version. It will take two weeks to print the book. In total, we hope to have the English version printed and ready to distribute a month after closing the crowdfunding campaign.
