Reviews

"Cities aren't built to accommodate female bodies, female needs, female desires. In this rich, engaging book the feminist geographer Leslie Kern envisions how we might transform the "city of men" into a city for everyone. Let's all move there immediately."
--Lauren Elkin, author of Flaneuse

"[An] insightful scholarly work ... This provocative analysis will resonate with theoretically minded feminists."
--Publishers Weekly

"Visionary, intelligent, and humane, this book offers intersectional insights into the gendered nature of the modern city to promote "living more justly in an urban world" ... A timely, thought-provoking study."
--Kirkus Reviews
