This study is situated in the changing socio-economic, political and intellectual realities of gender and generational inequalities within a rapidly urbanising world; and in relation to achieving the Millennium Development Goals, and the Habitat Agenda. The issues are particularly pertinent in urban settings, where resource ownership issues are acute, and social structures are undergoing rapid change. Experiences are given of everyday urban living based on mainly primary sources. The twelve articles arise from an international conference closing the GRUPHEL research programme - Gender Research on Urbanisation, Planning, Housing and Everyday Life. The articles cover gender and urban studies in different countries: Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zambia; and the study is multidisciplinary with contributions from sociologists, lawyers, architects, public administrators, geographers and activities. Matseliso M. Maptela is a Senior Research Fellow, and Acting Director of the Institute of Southern African Studies, National University of Lesotho. She is a social scientist, and coordinator and scientific adviser to GRUPHEL. Ann Schlyter is Associate Professor and Director of the Centre for Globel Gender Studies at Goteborg University, Sweden. She has been a scientific adviser and participant in GRUPHEL. Basia Dennis Bless is an independent researcher, and a former administrator of part of the GRUPHEL programme.
