Elizabeth Wilson suggests an answer: ‘We will never solve the problems of living in cities until we welcome and maximise the freedom and autonomy they offer and make these available to all classes and groups’ (Wilson, 1991:9). If urban dwellers are to be empowered to challenge the values of urban development, then the relation of urban form to social value, the unpacking of the underlying concept of the city, is the point of departure. 2 SPACE, REPRESENTATION AND GENDER INTRODUCTION The previous chapter concerned the fragmentation of the modern city and the separation of concept and form.

Space is also, according to geographer Doreen Massey, categorised as one side of a duality with gendered associations: There is a whole set of dualisms whose terms are commonly aligned with time and space. With time are aligned History, Progress, Civilisation, Science, Politics and Reason, portentous things with gravitas and capital letters. With space on the other hand are aligned the other poles of these concepts: stasis, (‘simple’) reproduction, nostalgia, emotion, aesthetics, the body. (Massey, 1994:257) Lefebvre is concerned to reclaim space as experiential as well as conceptual, to turn, perhaps, the contradiction into a paradox, and he asks if there is a logic to space, whether it has limits, and where it meets its first obstacle, such as a ‘residue resistant to every analytic effort’ (Lefebvre, [1974] 1991:292–3); from ‘peasant’ society he takes images of the body, the home and the village with its fields, beyond which is strangeness, and the beginnings of a spatial organisation of the included and excluded which can be both tacitly known and represented, both concrete and social, mental and abstract.

It is essentially a literature about transformations in the public world… What nearly all the accounts have in common is their concern with the public world of work, politics and city life’ (Wolff, 1989:141). At one level, this is explained by the extent to which professions, from politics to medicine and art, have discouraged women’s admittance except in subordinate roles—men being, for example, government ministers, doctors and artists whilst women are secretaries, nurses and models. Massey writes: ‘the mid-nineteenth century was a crucial [period] in the development of the notion of “the separation of spheres” and the confinement of women, ideologically if not for all women in practice, to the “private” sphere of the suburbs and the home’ (Massey, 1993:233).
