Abstract and Keywords
This article reviews some of the historical contributions of feminist urban scholarship. It identifies three areas for elaborated and intertwined research and improved planning, including gender and urban politics, and planning processes, gender and the home/housing, and gender and health. The article suggests that the contributions of feminist material analyses of urban politics and planning, home and housing, and health not only made gender and urban inequalities visible, but also helped us to better comprehend and transform cities.
Brenda Parker is Assistant Professor of Urban Planning and Policy at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
