SeriesOxfam Focus on Gender
The rapid expansion of towns and cities throughout the world in recent years has created huge problems, as governments have been unable to provide adequate housing and services for the growing urban population. This book in the Focus on Gender series looks at various aspects of urban life from a gender perspective. Contributors include Jo Beall, Delia Davin, Carole Rakodi, and Seteney Shami, and articles cover issues such as gender-sensitive urban planning; work-migration; community urban regeneration schemes, both government and NGO; health care for poor urban women; and the dislocation and loss of home experienced by refugees.
