Chant, Sylvia (1997) Gender aspects of urban economic growth and development. Research paper, 137. United Nations University, Helsinki, Finland.
The urbanization process is frequently shaped by prevailing constructions of gender. The recognition of this phenomenon is vital both in diagnosis and policy terms. This paper aims at illustrating the importance of gender in three major related aspects of urban growth and development: (i) transformations in household structure; (ii) shifts in household survival strategies and; (iii) changing patterns of employment.
