Abstract: There is a close parallel between the freedom, equality and socialization that the residents in a social sett??ng are enjoying and the openness and equal availability of the social infrastructure in this setting. When these points are taken into consideration, it is possible to get the idea that social infrastructure areas should be planned as woman-friendly city criteria. So long as the urban planning fails to accomplish this task of creating a due process and language for gender equality, the social infrastructure areas in the cities will continue to pose a serious problem to the gender equality. In this article, an attempt has been made to articulate some suggestions for evaluating the social infrastructure areas in the light of woman-friendly city planning. This article offers some gu??delines for deciding which data should be taken into consideration and how the social infrastructure areas should be examined. The study analyzes social infrastructure areas following four categories: adequacy, accessibility, safety and usability. The findings revealed that no social infrasurcture areas met these criteria, especially in the densely used areas. The lack of face-to-face interviews with women is the shortcoming of the study. The study is one of the first studies on the subject, but it is thought that it will contribute to the field literature with its review and recommendation codes.
