How can we rethink public spaces in the #MeToo era? What would a metropolis conceived for women who work look like? Women who push prams and take care of our elderly? We live in cities designed by men and for men. By seamlessly intertwining theory and lived experiences, urban studies and biographical narration, Leslie Kern demonstrates the importance of feminist thought in conceiving urban spaces, when investigating the limits and possibilities of our cities. What makes a place liveable, accessible, safe and dynamic for all is respect for the diversity of experiences and voices: for this reason the author argues for the importance of the role and work of women within it, to overcome gender and social inequalities in our neighbourhoods. Her brilliant and well-documented guide should become a reference point for all urban planners intent on shaping a new future and conceiving a city that respects women.
