Speculations on Housing, Urban Design and Human Work* from Catharine R.Stimpson, Elsa Dixler, Martha J.Nelson and Kathryn B.Yatrakis (eds), Women and the American City (1981) America 's cities and housing have not kept pace with the changing needs of households. Women have been entering the paid labor force in larger and larger numbers. Yet housing, neigh borhoods, and cities continue to be designed for homebound women. This situation constrains women physically, socially, and economically, and reinforces their dependence. Some models of alternative housing and neigh borhood designs that better meet women's needs are proposed in this chapter. 'A woman's place is in the home' has been one of the most important principles of architectural design and urban planning in the United States for the last century. An implicit rather than explicit principle for the conservative and male-dominated design professions, it will not be found stated in large type in textbooks on land use. It has generated much less debate than the other organizing principles of the contemporary American city in an era of monopoly capitalism, which include the ravaging pressure of private land development, the fetishistic dependence on millions of private automobiles, and the wasteful use of energy. However, women have rejected this dogma and entered the paid labor force in larger and larger numbers. Dwellings, neighborhoods, and cities designed for homebound women constrain women physically, socially, and economically. Acute frustration occurs when women defy these constraints to spend all or part of the workday in the paid labor force. I contend that the only remedy for this situation is to develop a new paradigm of the home, the neighborhood, and the city; to begin to describe the physical, social, and economic design of a human settlement that would support, rather than restrict, the activities of employed women and their families. It is essential to recognize such needs in order to begin both the rehabilitation of the existing housing stock and the construction of new housing to meet the needs of a new and growing majority of Americans-working women and their families. When speaking of the American city in the last quarter of the twentieth century, a false distinction between city' and 'suburb' must be avoided. The urban region, organised to separate homes and workplaces, must be een as a whole. In such urban regions, more than half of the population resides in the sprawling suburban 'bedroom communities.' The greatest part of the built environment in the United States consists of uburban sprawl': single-family homes grouped in class-segregated areas, crisscrossed by freeways and rved by shopping malls and commercial strip developments. Over 50 million small homes are on the ound. About two-thirds of American families 'own' their homes on long mortgages; thisinchides.o of dECIOMebers Housing, 1975, 16)Wite .S. or applicable copyright Law.
