Gendered Walkability: Building a daytime walkability index for women in San Francisco

This thesis aims to create the first walkability index devised specifically for women: Women’s Walking Index (WWI). Incorporating input from focus groups and using GIS to synthesize data on crime, homelessness, vehicular traffic, businesses, sidewalk conditions and other elements, the WWI will be calculated for the city of San Francisco, producing a “female-pedestrian friendliness” score for every block in the city.
