Looking past the utopian façade of the modern city, this book interrogates the reality of urban life and its concurrent inequalities. The starting point is the question of how to realise the dream of the egalitarian city, changing lives by changing the place we inhabit. From here ensues an interrogation of the so-called ‘feminist dimensions of urban experiments’. An investigation into historical projects and modern experimentations demonstrates how places and gender interact. Analysing utopian and implemented egalitarian urban projects that seek to change gender relations, this book also reflects on the relative positions of men and women within our socially constructed cities.
