This book reveals the means by which property-owning middle class women achieved entry into the male dominated sphere of urban planning. It suggests that women in California were not limited in their public life. Instead, they embraced the middle class ideology of propertied self-interest and participated to the fullest extent possible in the urban struggle for regional dominance that shaped this period of western history.
