“How It Would Be If Some Ladies Had Their Own Way: Gender Politics, Then and Now”
Thursday, May 7, 2020
Event Postponed to May 6, 2021
Kerckhoff Grand Salon
308 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles CA 90095
Join us as Dolores Hayden will explore the struggle of women for gender justice in the United States began in the 19th century with campaigns aimed at redefining private and public space.
Continuing battles over gender have always intersected with race and class in complex ways, moving across the scales of the body, the building, the neighborhood and the urban region. How did feminist planners at UCLA take up these issues in the 1970s and 1980s, and what does the contested history of gender suggest for planning and public policy today?
