Suffragette City brings together a collection of illustrated essays dedicated to exploring and analysing cases in which women have resourcefully leveraged or defied the politics of gender to form and reform architecture and urbanism. Throughout much of modern history, women have been assigned to the margins and expected to play passive social roles. Suffragette City draws on nineteenth- and twentieth-century architectural case studies from the English-speaking world, including the USA, South Africa, Scotland, India and England, to examine places and moments when women stepped into the centre of public life and claimed opportunities to shape the fabrics of their communities. Their engagements with the built environment consistently  transcended architecture to achieve the level of urbanism, as whole networks of relationships came into their purview, transforming the architecture of socio-political connection as well as the confronting the physical divisions that have historically lain along racial, economic and gendered lines. Academics, researchers and students engaged in architectural history, theory, urbanism, gender studies and social and cultural history will be interested in this fascinating, politically-charged text.


"Suffragette City provides many surprises. These lively essays document women's activist coalitions aimed at reforming housing and the built environment in several national contexts. Highly recommended for readers interested in the history of feminism, architecture, and city life." Dolores Hayden, author of The Grand Domestic Revolution: A History of Feminist Designs for American Homes, Neighborhoods, and Cities, Professor Emerita, Yale University "Suffragette City: Gender, Politics and the Built Environment is a wonderful book-a remarkable, timely achievement. Clearly written with verve and with conviction, and using little-known and important examples, the authors share stories of women in architecture and their work to build a better, more just, more equitable world. It is indispensable reading for architects, activists, historians, and women everywhere." Marta Gutman, The City College of New York and the CUNY Graduate Center "In the spirit of Emmeline Pankhurst, this valuable collection of histories emphasizes "deeds, not words": Suffragette City describes a metaphorical place where women design and preserve their cities, transform the professions that marginalized them, and reinvent their homes and architecture in ways previously unimagined by men. It is also, in the end, a call for new deeds to achieve equal rights to the city and to the professions that shape the built environment." Peter L. Laurence, author of Becoming Jane Jacobs
