Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Jessica Ellen Sewell takes her readers on an invigorating jaunt through women’s history. She shows more vividly than ever before how a generation of women took command of public space and moved decisively and exuberantly onto the streets, and all the way to the voting booths." —Mary Ryan, Johns Hopkins University

"Women and the Everyday City illuminates how the shifting geography of consumption transformed women’s physical experience of the city-scape and increased their comfort at exerting rights to public space. Sewell makes a significant new contribution to the understanding of urban space and power." —Sarah Deutsch, Duke University
