Books Info:

Women and Space free pdf Second, Revised Edition The relationship between women and space has now been recognized as an important issue for feminist discussion. Developments in psychology and geography have encouraged the use of 'social maps' to explore the way in which space is perceived. This book presents fascinating ethnographic evidence collected by the authors from actresses, politicians, farmers and housewives in England, Africa, Iran, Peru, Greece and the former Soviet Union. This evidence illustrates how space must be considered both in its physical dimensions and in its social and symbolic aspects, as experienced by women.
