Space, Activities and Gender- Everyday Life in Lindora, Costa Rica

Grundström, Karin LU (2005)
Abstract
The thesis analyzes the everyday life of women and men in a neighbourhood planned for low-income housing in the ourskirts of the capital San José in Costa Rica. The research uses an everyday life perspective and shows how gender organization leads to a division of labour and a use of space that differentiate between women and men's activities. There are space use patterns that reflect the existing gender organization, but also patterns of women crossing borders between public and private space to perform their activities.
