Discrimination by Design


Product Description
Product Details


Both Weisman and Daphne Spain ( Gendered Spaces , LJ 3/1/92) assert that the gendered arrangement and design of space lowers women's social status. Whereas Spain studies both industrial and nonindustrial societies and concentrates on homes and the workplace, Weisman examines primarily contemporary American socioeconomic organizations of space. Through feminist criticism, she looks at male/female roles in public spaces (parks), public buildings (skyscrapers and shopping malls), and private dwellings (houses, multiple family dwellings, and housing projects). A major portion of Weisman's work focuses on contemporary women's housing issues, offering solutions (some architectural and some economic). Despite strong feminist biases, this volume complements Spain's and is highly recommended for academic and large public libraries.-- Jenny Presnell, Miami Univ. Libs., Oxford, Ohio
