now reading: Leslie Kern’s ‘Feminist City’

UPDATE: Finished! A smart, well-considered overview on how women interact with urban spaces that weren’t designed with us in mind, and how we can rethink cities to make them friendlier, safer, and more usable for everyone. Kern is extremely intersectional in how she thinks about the differing needs and concerns of women of color, disabled people, and LGBTQ+ folks… and how sometimes, what we’ve seen as “progress” for well-off white women in urban landscapes has left others behind, and why we need to keep this mind as we reshape cities for the future. Written before the pandemic, but must reading as we ponder what cities will look like in the wake of it.
