Feminist City (2020, Verso) 3 stars

Good introductory book to a gender-based look about cities

3 stars

Admittedly, it is not what I expected. After reading the title, author's bio and summary, I thought this would be an essential book to build a theoretical framework about urban studies with a gendered approach, which is what I was looking for. Instead, it is a very personal book in which the author shares her lived experiences around feminism and cities (that relationship is not always so clear).

Being said that, I have enjoyed reading it. The book is well written, the stories are interesting and very illustrative and the text is full of bibliographical references for those who want to know more. This combination makes it a very good introductory book for those (like me) who want to start learning about urban studies with a gendered perspective.
