Women in the City
Allentuck, Sarah A.
That many women experience disadvantage in urban areas is, to some extent, due to misconceptions and false assumptions regarding their needs on the part of the city planning profession. The author explores some of the negative consequences of city planning as they affect women — economically disadvantaged women in particular. Concentration is placed on the historical causes of, and possible solutions to, inequities in housing, transportation, childcare and safety. Examples of Winnipeg are cited
