Women and the Everyday City

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter looks at women's various domestic errands, particularly shopping. The chapter looks specifically at downtown shopping districts, grocery stores, and local main streets. In these landscapes, women from the two classes were able to create varied experiences. At times, these varied experiences led to conflicts and discrepancies, for instance, how shopping ignited conflicts between the store’s workforce and the middle-class shoppers. Such shopping conflicts were usually dependent to these factors: class backgrounds, dress codes, and store’s architectural designs.

Keywords:   errands, shopping, downtown shopping districts, grocery stores, local main streets, middle-class shoppers, shopping conflicts
