The Jane Jacobs 100 Conference was marked by the TU Delft Feminist Group‘s protest about the absence of women among the main speakers in the conference. The organisers recognise their mistake and apologise unreservedly. A series of unfortunate coincidences led to the main panel being composed by men only.
The protest was made of chairs with names of female scholars who could have been invited to speak at the conference. The chairs remained in the main room of the faculty for the remainder of the conference.
To celebrate Jane Jacob’s ideas properly, we organised a second event on the first anniversary of the first event titled ‘Jane Jacobs is still here!’ where two eminent female specialists on Jane Jacobs were invited to speak.
