house of commons will vote overwhelmed with tourists... later today on the new trade agreement truck by the uk and ..the streets in some parts the european union last week. it is expected to pass with ease not least because the of town are now eerily quiet. labour leader sir keir starmer this is a place that has instructed his mps to back the deal struck by boris entertained up to 8.9 million johnson. but he is likely to tourists a year. face a limited rebellion by some of his colleagues determined to vote against what they say is a bad deal for the uk. here's our political correspondentjessica parker. it's important to point out, borisjohnson is likely to get his trade deal and it was an invisible through parliament tomorrow. army of women who kept he has a majority, he today won the hospitality industry the backing of a group of eurosceptic conservative mps in parliament. but things are looking going — cleaners. a bit more complicated, as you say, for the labour party. sir keir starmer has ordered vania rana came to barcelona his mps to back the agreement. from peru 28 years ago. he describes that agreement now, she's at the centre as thin, but says it's better of a collective of women than a no—deal outcome, and he doesn't feel that labour should be, as he put it, who advocate on behalf "sitting on the sidelines of cleaners. and when we first met her, by abstaining". but at least a handful of his own mps do look set she was campaigning to have cleaners treated more fairly. to defy him. some of them argue the deal will pass anyway, but now their industry they shouldn't put their names, they say, to an agreement they think is bad has been decimated.
1:32 am
for the country. but regardless, a deal does look set to race through parliament as parliament is recalled here tomorrow. now of course, the uk did actually leave the eu back injanuary, but it's in two days‘ time that it actually extracts itself from the european union at the end of the transition period. so, on issues of trade and immigration, that is when the relationship fundamentally changes — that's when we begin to find out what brexit really means. wow. jessica parker therefore asked there. —— there for us. now on bbc news: 100 women, what does a city designed by women for women look like? cities are supposed to be built for all of us, but they aren't built by all of us — because most cities, if not all of them, the collective of women just try to support each other where they can. are designed and built by men. but what would a city look like if it was built by women? in 2019, we came to barcelona
1:33 am
to meet a group of influential feminist leaders to hear their plans to redesign the city. but a year ago, we never could have imagined just how much the world would change. it might be years before tourists can come back to enjoy barcelona like they did before the coronavirus stopped us in our tracks. but the city still vibrates with the rhythms of ordinary life. and some people see the pandemic as an opportunity for change. how are you, fine? yeah, good. very strange, this situation. so strange! yes. what a year. so we've come back to barcelona to find out how a city that was trying to work better for women has weathered the biggest crisis of our lifetime.
1:34 am
that's ba rcelona's councillor of urbanism, janet sanz, when we first met janet, we watched one of barcelona's oldest traditions — barcelona is a city that has the castellers — something that a long history of reinventing seems almost impossible now. itself with brave and adventurous urban design. this year, the atmosphere over 6,000 years, generation is a little less festive. after generation of men have but the pandemic‘s not stopping put their mark on this city. janet sanz and her plans to transform this city. but when we came here in 2019, it was in the midst of a feminist takeover. but the pandemic‘s not stopping janet sanz and her plans to transform this city. in 2015, the city had elected its first female mayor, ada colau. to reclaim the streets from cars. the project is called
1:35 am
the ‘superille‘, or superblock. in almost every city, cars take up more space than any other road user. and it wasn'tjust the mayor. the idea of the superblocks is to reclaim the streets for pedestrians, for cyclists barcelona's feminist revolution involves everyone from writers or even just for hanging out. to urban planners, architects and economists, and all those the plan takes nine blocks who make up the fabric and forms one big superblock, which are closed off of this evolving city. from through traffic. 0nly cars that need access are allowed in, and the speed playgrounds were being reimagined, streets were being limit is reduced to 10 km/h. named for women, public transport was changing so women didn't have to walk parked cars go underground. alone at night. and the city was so instead of busyjunctions, saying no to sleaze. you have parks, picnic benches and play areas. but then the pandemic hit. and just like so many other places, barcelona is reeling. so how are these feminist ideals withstanding a pandemic? and did it teach us anything
1:36 am
about how the legacy of this virus will impact women? someone who could explain this better than most... masqaretes. judit vall castello. as a health economist and a mum, she's had a very do you think there'll busy few months. be a resistance? my husband is an essential worker, so i was alone at home. and working full—time? and working full—time, so, yeah, we had difficult situations where i posted some postits in the door in the dining room — "it's forbidden to enter now!" brilliant. did it work? no major incidents. judit‘s been studying scaling up means creating 21 the economic impact of the pandemic, particularly more of these squares on women, and she's found something interesting. and turning the streets between them into green hubs, filled with plants and trees.
1:37 am
so, basically, the previous like most of europe, the city's crisis that we had in 2008, dealing with a second wave of the virus, and bars it affected very much certain and restaurants are closed. sectors that we know have a higher incidence the superille is busier of men working there. than ever, but not everyone the situation is completely is thrilled about that. different now because the biggest sectors that have been affected are the service sectors. and we know that in those sectors, there's a higher proportion of women working there. so this is a pretty short—term effect. so in the short—term, it's very clear and we can already see the stats for several countries. the situation might be different in the long term. why is that? well, there are mainly two reasons. the first one is that some of the firms have been forced to flexibilise the employment situation, to make employment building a consensus to change more flexible, to allow working from home, a city is hard work, and in the long—term, this is going to beneficial for women. so barcelona has brought people on board who are studying the city from a deeply then the second thing is that women working in the health feminist perspective. care service, women working in the cleaning service, these women had to keep working during the lockdown situation, and so their partners, the fathers, had to stay
1:38 am
at home, and so this has been proven to change the gender the last time we came here, we met blanca at her studio roles for the children at home. in the city. then, her collective, punt 6, were doing deep research into how men and women use the city differently. now, they're working with the town hall on a very specific project — making the bicycle network work do you have an idea of how many betterfor women. families this is affecting, how many families are changing their gender roles as a result of this pandemic? in 10% of the families, the fathers were in charge of the children during the lockdown situation. 0k. and some fathers who weren't before, so this is a new pattern emerging? exactly. for lots of people, it's been a difficult year. for some, it's been life—changing. we met conchi braojos in 2019 because she had been working with the feminist collective to find a solution to the problem there's a huge increase of getting to work. she's a cleaner in a hospital in the number of people using bicycles since and she had to walk alone in the middle of the night the pandemic, especially women, because of the lack but there's also of bus connections. been a few issues.
1:39 am
she's a cleaner in a hospital and she had to walk alone in the middle of the night this is a city that was hit because of the lack hard by the pandemic, of bus connections. none of us could have imagined and its long—term legacy the year that was in store is onlyjust beginning. like no other recession, for her, as the hospital she worked in became one it seems women are bearing of those at the centre the brunt of this one. of the pandemic. but a city that's trying to work betterfor women could teach us how we can all weather this crisis... build up cities that work
1:40 am
better for everyone. hello. winter is finally turning white for some of us. not all of us going to see the snow over the next few days. the potential is still there for a bit more to come our way, though. it's certainly staying cold enough, but that frosty sharp frost at times overnight, icy conditions where we're seeing some showers of rain, sleet, hail, yes, some snow, notjust on hills but at times to lower levels, with that risk of disruption. there are coming our way some fairly weak weather disturbances, but they're within a flow ofaircoming down from the north, which means the moisture out of these disturbances will be falling as rain but also sleet and snow in places. and we'll have had a few
1:41 am
wintry showers overnight, into first thing in the morning. there's a sharp frost out there, maybe —9 in a few spots in scotland, icy conditions around and after all of this, and still some of these showers conchi still has to walk falling as snow, to work in the middle maybe notjust on hills, into the north, northwest of the night. of scotland, northern ireland. a few of these wintry showers running down towards north wales, north—west england, during the peak of the the northwest midlands, lockdown, she also found and then we see an area of rain she was ferrying things like phone chargers but turning to sleet and snow to and from the hospital, potentially for south wales, because spain had one more especially of the strictest running eastwards across parts of southern england during wednesday. lockdowns in the world. some uncertainty about how far north it'll get, how much sleet and snow people were only allowed there will be within this. to leave their homes it'll be a cold day, yes, if they absolutely had to. but much of the eastern side of the uk will stay dry and get children had to stay to see a bit of sunshine. what rain, sleet and snow inside for months. there is will continue to pull across parts of southern england overnight and into thursday that rule came from central morning before clearing. government, and it's something as thursday begins, we're getting that mayor ada colau some of these snow said she disagreed with showers pushing in towards eastern parts from the start. of scotland, and it's those that are going to move further south during thursday, again giving the potential for some snow and ice in places, and notjust on hills, and the chance of some
1:42 am
disruption as a result. so, this system will take its rain, sleet and snow showers out of scotland and into parts of england and wales as we go through thursday. the tendency for a lot of that to turn back to rain if you are seeing some snow away from hills during thursday, and where you don't get to see any rain, sleet and snow, quite a bit of cloud, maybe a few sunny spells, but it'll be cold. that weather system still around overnight and into friday, new year's day, the start of 2021. it will tend to die out during friday but still with a good deal of cloud, especially through england and wales, and patchy rain, sleet and hill snow out of that. and little less cold on friday, but temperatures staying below average well into the start of 2021. when we met the first time, colau spoke about her vision of feminist politics, that it was built around consensus.
1:43 am
and that was important, because her left—wing party didn't win a clear majority in the last election and she's in power with a party on the right.
1:44 am
before she became a politician, ada colau was an activist, fighting against evictions, but she has been criticised for failing to stop a rise in evictions in the last few months. 00:14:25,262 --> 2147483051:43:57,346 there's a project that 2147483051:43:57,346 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 mayor ada colau was keen for us this is bbc news. welcome to our viewers in the uk, on pbs in america and around the world. my name's mike embley, our top stories: the us president—electjoe biden criticises his predecessor's vaccine rollout and pledges 100 million jabs in his first 100 days.
