WOMEN AND URBAN SETTLEMENTS
Caroline Sweetman (Ed.)
The Second UN Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II; Istanbul, June 1996) focused attention on the increasingly inadequate availability of housing and basic services, and the growing number of de facto female-headed households. This new title in Oxfam's Focus on Gender series thus comes as a timely resource to understand the links between people's -- especially women's -- physical surroundings and what they do to survive. Case studies from Jordan, China, Guayaquil, Afghanistan, and Ethiopia examine issues such as gender-sensitive urban planning; work-migration; government and NGO community urban regeneration schemes; health care for poor urban women; and the dislocation and loss of home experienced by refugees. List of resources; bibliography.
