October 1994 | 312 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
High-level urban analysis is noticeably devoid of either gendered perspectives or attention to women's interests, relying instead on economics and sometimes race to explain various phenomenon. Gender in Urban Research applies gender as a category of analysis to urban institutions. Contributions cover gendered analysis in central city development policy, violence against women, affordable housing, political power and elections.
