Title: Urban Feminist Knowledge Production in the 21st Century

Abstract: Urbanization is a deeply gendered process, yet academic knowledge production on the urban has rarely engaged with women as urban citizens or feminism as a mode of thought and action. I discuss what it means to engage with feminism in the urban twenty-first century and consider feminism’s role in urban knowledge production and democratic futures.
