Moradab Hill/ Eslamabad is an informal settlement in Iran. This figure shows the location of potential places of encounter and destinations that encourage women's mobility in the settlement. Our research found that houses, parks, retail shops and workplaces are potential areas that could affect women's lives and urban policy has largely affected these areas.

This figure is part of a research conducted in Moradab Hill, that adopts a gender perspective to explore the influence of different places on women’s practices for social interaction and physical activity in the case study. This research was undertaken in 2019, as part of an MPhil studies at the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Cambridge. The fieldwork was undertaken in April 2019.
