Join us for an online conference to examine the relations between the modern city and the women who conceived, planned, designed, initiated and often also financed it. The figure of la Flâneuse (the female wanderer) represents a change in the status of women that began in the 20th century, after long periods in which they did not have equal rights concerning action and visibility in the urban space, which was largely defined as masculine. In the conference we will move between periods, cities and continents to examine the challenges these cities presented and the hopes they raised among women who led active lives in them. Three international scholars were invited to address this topic.
