This publication is designed to document the contribution made by women to urban-planning discourse, specifically their share in the production of urban space. Opening up new thematic and methodological horizons for urban-planning research, this study has the goal discussing a potential “other” theory of urban planning. Prioritizing social factors in urban concepts, “feminine” urban planning shows a topicality that meets the most urgent issues of urbanization demand: globalization, migrant workers, urbanization). This investigation of an urban-planning discourse by women corresponds to the emergence and evolution of urban planning, and is intended to fill the historiographical gap in the history and theory of urban design.
