Gender and the City

...sometimesnowhere.....sometimesnowhere.. by *ines_maria

Take a moment to look around you. Really look. See the city — the streets, the buildings, the spaces between them — and realize for a moment that virtually everything you see has been designed and shaped by men. Now imagine what it would be like if it were women-led. — Katrina Johnston-Zimmerman

supercrayon's Cities of ladies post is a stunning collection of great links about women-built cities, gender, women and urbanism / city planning.
