Il PinKorner

Topic AwarenessDesignParticipation cultureTransport patterns & user needs


Adattato e marchiato come un gioco di parole tra il rosa e l'angolo, l'idea è di progettare un'area di attesa speciale per le donne all'interno del sistema di trasporto pubblico (stazioni e terminali di autobus/treno/metropolitana/tram). Poiché il colore rosa è già associato alla femminilità, la campagna proposta va oltre questo concetto, aumentando la consapevolezza attraverso la grafica visiva (messaggi scritti) in luoghi chiave di una comunità.

Esempio: 4 degli 8 posti di attesa in una stazione di autobus possono essere trasformati in 4 posti rosa, con i seguenti messaggi evidenziati in lettere blu su sfondo rosa:


Un posto per portarle rispetto.

O per mostrarle il tuo RISPETTO. Darle/lasciare questo posto.



Una campagna per promuovere l'uguaglianza nei trasporti alimentata da TInnGO

Il luogo o i luoghi in cui applicarla

In ogni città di ogni partner di TInnGo, in tutta Europa.

Il costo

La proposta implica costi per il design del concetto, per la stampa degli adesivi per ogni sito identificato e per le sedie/panca rosa, ecc.

An interesting idea but it brings up some issues. There are currently some  campaigns against gender stereotyping with  colour  (e.g. why are girls toys/clothes pink and boys blue?) - this gender stereotyping  makes no allowance for individual choice and is not diversity sensitive - there is plenty of research to support a move away from this.  It worries me that in this design idea women need to be 'segregated' on special seats to have respect - the segregation itself could be humiliating. There are (or were)  certainly 'ladies waiting rooms'  on some railway stations in the UK, (traditionally) but I wonder if they are now being rebranded simply for anyone.  However,  I think the idea of a 'quiet place' at transport waiting areas, is a good one that could be used by anyone needing to feel private or safe, older people, vulnerable people, people feeling unwell, depressed or tired, parent with a baby, for example.

Thank you for raising this idea. The concept of safe spaces in public transport systems is definitely one that requires further discussion and design solutions, however labelling them as pink spaces  perpetuates stereotypes and would not be an acceptable feature in many countries. I would would also suggest that solutions developed for this is idea incorporate an intersectional approach, i.e., what about elderly people, both men and women? They may also need a safe seated space.

Is the pink necessary to spread the message of respect? Is this only going to be targeted towards cisgendered women, or can it be adapted to include all genders (ie: non binary, agender, transgender, etc...)?

Why do people not respect women and other groups in their everyday lives? (is it a lack of understanding, or are there other resasons?) Answering that may bring us closer to understanding how to change people's behaviors towards those groups.

How are we going to encourage respect to be followed through after people leave the PinKorner? I imagine the PinKorner is only a starting point for women to be treated with respect, and hopefully the respect that is given to women there, can be shown everywhere, at all time.

In general, I love diversification of sitting areas so I think it`s a great idea. One size does not fit all! My question: what are the other (apart from the pink colour) distinctive features of the female area (in terms of design)?
