    Content: We live in the <em class="albert-highlight">city</em> of men. Our public spaces are not designed for female bodies. There is little consideration for women as mothers, workers or carers. The urban streets often are a place of threats rather than community. Gentrification has made the everyday lives of women even more difficult. What would a metropolis for working women look like? A <em class="albert-highlight">city</em> of friendships beyond Sex and the <em class="albert-highlight">City</em>. A transit system that accommodates mothers with strollers on the school run. A public space with enough toilets. A place where women can walk without harassment. In Feminist <em class="albert-highlight">City</em>, through history, personal experience and popular culture <em class="albert-highlight">Leslie</em> <em class="albert-highlight">Kern</em> exposes what is hidden in plain sight: the social inequalities built into our cities, homes, and neighborhoods. <em class="albert-highlight">Kern</em> offers an alternative vision of the feminist <em class="albert-highlight">city</em>. Taking on fear, motherhood, friendship, activism, and the joys and perils of being alone, <em class="albert-highlight">Kern</em> maps the <em class="albert-highlight">city</em> from new vantage points, laying out an intersectional feminist approach to urban histories and proposes that the <em class="albert-highlight">city</em> is perhaps also our best hope for shaping a new urban future. It is time to dismantle what we take for granted about cities and to ask how we can build more just, sustainable, and women-friendly cities together.

    Content: "Young, single women emerged in the late 1990s as powerful consumers in the wave of real estate development that was reshaping the landscape of cities. Reports claimed that condominium ownership offered women new-found freedom, financial independence, and personal security. But has home ownership truly empowered women, or were the reports merely celebratory rhetoric that disguised more disquieting trends?" "To get at the reality behind the rhetoric, Sex and the Revitalized City explores the phenomenon from the perspective of planners, developers, and women condo owners to reveal that women's relationship with the city is being remade in the image of fast capital and consumer citizenship. As filtered through condominium ownership, neoliberal ideologies are not freeing women from constraints - they are reinforcing patriarchal norms."--Jacket

    Content: "<em class="albert-highlight">Leslie</em> <em class="albert-highlight">Kern</em> wants your <em class="albert-highlight">city</em> to be feminist. Feminist <em class="albert-highlight">City</em>: A Field Guide combines memoir, feminist theory, pop culture, and geography to expose what is hidden in plain sight: the social inequalities built right into our cities, homes, and neighbourhoods. Focusing on gendered experiences of the <em class="albert-highlight">city</em>, the books grapples with the challenge of claiming urban space amongst barriers designed to keep women "in their place." From the geography of rape culture to the politics of snow removal, the <em class="albert-highlight">city</em> is an ongoing site of gendered struggle. Yet the <em class="albert-highlight">city</em> is perhaps also our best hope for shaping new social relations based around care and justice. Taking on fear, motherhood, friendship, activism, and the joys and perils of being alone, <em class="albert-highlight">Kern</em> maps the <em class="albert-highlight">city</em> from new vantage points, laying out a feminist intersectional approach to urban histories and pathways towards different urban futures. Feminist questions about safety and fear, paid and unpaid work, and rights and representation prompt us to dismantle what we take for granted about cities and open space to ask how we can build more just, sustainable, and care-full cities together."
