I am currently working on the development of urban gender segregation in the United States and efforts of first and second wave feminists to soften or undermine that system. The piece of the project that is my current focus deals with second wave feminists' challenges to gender segregation in public accommodations, specifically male-only bars and restaurants, in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
