Women and Gentrification:Making Some Connections
Gentrification is a process of social restructuring that has been taking place in essence since the end of WWII, but just under the title of Urban Renewal. In the past four decades American citizens all over major cities of the country have seen their once "blighted" neighborhoods, and the cultural as well as social connections they have with their community, relinquished in the name of gentrification. While there has been little research or studies done on the effects of the overall process on women in particular. This is something that has to be analyzed further and more in depth, and is an issue more people in general, not just women should, should want to learn more about.
Here is a link to my personal blog where I've posted my paper and a bibliography for those interested http://bxnative.wordpress.com
