Feminist City
by Leslie Kern

Women have been drawn to city life for centuries, despite the persistent tensions, freedom and fear, empowerment and struggle. Taking an intersectional approach to urban inequality, geographer Leslie Kern urges us to change the perspective from which our spaces are designed and built.
