The Honourable Julie Anne Genter is New Zealand's Minister for Women and Associate Minister for Transport and for Health. Her passion for urban and transport planning got her into politics, she explains to host Michelle Batsas. She advocated for over a decade to have minimum parking requirements removed from district plans, to allow for more beneficial use of urban space. She highlights how the cost of subsidising public transport is much lower than the cost of another car on the road. She implores women to back themselves and fight for transport and the future of the planet.
