Nowadays people are surrounded by Gendered spaces. Gendered space means to deprive a group of people from attending and using a space. Eliminating gendered spaces and providing the opportunity for public participation in urban spaces requires, at first, the ability to identify gendered components in space. By identifying gendered components and employing them, more balanced urban spaces might be created. Since men and women vary respecting perception of space, discovering conceptual priorities in space may aid in recognizing gender components. Studying feminine architecture, art and literary works to discover gendered components leads to attributes which can be used in space. Research methodology is field and library observations as well as interviewing Iranian tourists who has visited Georges Pompidou museum in Paris, Massena square in Nice, Piazza Del Campo in Siena, and Spanish Steps in Rome for the first time. Research results show that of the aforementioned, Georges Pompidou museum and Piazza Del Campo outdoors are male-oriented spaces; whereas, Spanish Steps is female-oriented and Massena square in Nice is a neutral (balanced) context.
