Leslie Kern presents Feminist City: Claiming Space in a Man-Made World
In conversation with Liza Featherstone and Samuel Stein
Author of Sex and the Revitalized City Leslie Kern presents her new book, Feminist City, an ongoing experiment in living differently, living better, and living more justly in an urban world. Through history, personal experience and popular culture, Kern exposes what is hidden in plain sight: the social inequalities built into our cities, homes, and neighborhoods. Taking on fear, motherhood, friendship, activism, and the joys and perils of being alone, she maps the city from new vantage points, laying out an intersectional feminist approach to urban histories and proposes that the city is perhaps also our best hope for shaping a new urban future. Feminist City calls for us to dismantle what we take for granted about cities and to ask how we can build more just, sustainable, and women-friendly cities together. Liza Featherstone, journalist and author of Divining Desire, and Samuel Stein, author of Capital City, join Kern in conversation for this virtual book talk!
