The Freedom of the streets
Throughout history and across cultures, women are seen as destined for the home instead of the street. At the same time, in historic cities worldwide women ventured out regularly to shop, work, pray, and play. This research project investigates the relationship between women and the city street in a time when historians believe restrictions on female movement greatly intensified.
