Lynne Walker (Ainley, 1998) suggests that women are not passive in the discourses and construction of gendered spaces. She claims that – from, “independent middle-class women” in the late nineteenth century cities – not only are women’s socially lived identities partly defined by the spaces they occupy, but, “in turn their presence produce[s] the social spaces and buildings they occup[y]: a process which [is] cumulative and reflexive, taking place over time, producing, and being produced by and within, dynamic, gendered space.” (p. 66)


That women are “producers as well as consumers of the built environment . . . and, most importantly, how it [feels] to be in public space . . . and the public realm.” (p. 67)
