Aspects of Urban Housing for Women and Men in Southern Africa

by Matseliso, 'ma-Tlali Mapetla

The six essays address urban life, housing and community participation is southern Africa – Botswana, Lesotho, South Africa and Zambia – from gender perspectives. The papers reveal concerns about unequal relations between women and men in relation to access to and control of housing and community affairs. They conclude that men and women have different housing aspirations, and that women are disproportionately affected by inadequate financing.
