About the Author
Edited by Inés Sánchez de Madariaga, Author: Marion Roberts
'When seeking to raise the lack of interest in still-to-be-met women and planning issues, so often planners tell me, Oh we've done women, you should be concerned with the environment. Thus it is to be welcomed that another urban feminist book has come along, in these times in which environmental sustainability dominates the agenda and marginalises, indeed ignores, matters of gender and equality. Indeed it is very curious that the sustainability and diversity agendas seem to exist in separate worlds, as two of the most powerful forces in modern urban policy-making, especially since so many environmental policies have been developed without reference to gender issues and thus prove impractical and discriminatory for women.' Clara Greed, Emerita Professor, University of the West of England, UK 'Cities should be liveable for everyone and the gender lens provides one of the key perspectives we need as planners. Too few practicing planners still grasp this. This important contribution to the literature helps us better understand where to go next.' Dory Reeves, University of Auckland, New Zealand 'The chapters are concise and specific, and its structure allows the editors to bring together a wide variety of research on an array of gender planning issues... the text is incredibly thought provoking and its varied contributions would suit a variety of educational contexts, from undergraduate and graduate courses on urban planning, gender and European politics to practitioners and policymakers.' LSE Review of Books 'Fair Shared Cities is an original edited collection featuring state-of-the-art conceptual treatises and rich empirical case studies on gender planning in diverse European urban contexts.'
