What Would a Non-Sexist City Be Like?
My partner was asked at a party the other night how she dealt with such a male dominated world, as she is also a planner. The conversation turned to how sexist cities are. Designed for men, etc. She asked if I knew any decent articles on this topic. I can suggest a few. But one stands out. This is: What Would a Non-Sexist City Be Like? Speculations on Housing, Urban Design, and Human Work by Dolores Hayden. Signs, Vol. 5, No. 3, Supplement. Women and the American City (Spring, 1980), pp. S170-S187
