Feminist City : Claiming Space in a Man-Made World

See all formats and editions

What should a metropolis for working women look like?

A city of friendships beyond Sex and the City. A transit system that accommodates mothers with strollers on the school run.

A public space with enough toilets. A place where women can walk without harassment. Through history, personal experience and popular culture Leslie Kern exposes what is hidden in plain sight: the social inequalities are built into our cities, homes, and neighbourhoods.

She maps the city from new vantage points, laying out a feminist intersectional approach to urban histories and proposes that the city is perhaps also our best hope for shaping a new urban future.

It is time to dismantle what we take for granted about cities and to ask how we can build more just, sustainable, and care-full cities together.
