Gender, class, and gentrification: enriching the debate

Liz Bondi

Received 16 September 1997; in revised form 14 August 1998

Abstract. In this paper I take up the debate about gender, class, and gentrification. I accept the importance of class formation in understanding the relationship between gender and gentrification, and seek to supplement existing empirical studies by further exploring gender and class practices in a range of neighbourhoods. Through a combination of quantitative and qualitative sources I present a detailed analysis of social change in two inner-urban neighbourhoods and one suburban neighbourhood in Edinburgh, Scotland. I emphasise the importance of the patterning of life courses in the articulation of class and gender practices, and draw attention to the different ways in which gender, class, and life course are interwoven in particular cities and neighbourhoods.
