Description - New Frontiers of Space, Bodies and Gender by Rosa Ainley
This work seeks to unravel the stereotypical images of gender and space and presents a series of explorations into both "lived" and "imagined" spaces. It examines an array of issues, including: Jamaican Ragga music and female performance; feminist anti-violence work; pregnant women's experience of shopping centres; the fear of crime felt by women using urban greenspace; and the implications of technology in gendering identities. The book forges parameters for debates on gender and space, leaving behind the simple focus on "women-as-victim" in the public arena and remapping considerations of space which look beyond bricks and mortar.
