Abstract

This article draws on primary research undertaken with over 3,000 women in the North East of England to explore the links between women, transport and the labour market. The research was funded by ESF and develops a new conceptual framework to analyse the importance of private transport in allowing women to access employment. The article subsequently informed the development of local transport strategies in the North East and has been utilised by the DoT to support the development of links between transport and social inclusion at a national level.
