Reflection on city women

City of Women tries to talk about a world where women are in charge. Rebecca gives examples of the many things like streets, buildings, parks etc. that are named after men. This becomes very repetitive and her tone seems condescending. Almost making you feel like the dead men are looking down on you if your a women, putting themselves on a pedestal saying, “you can’t reach this level”.  While there are few statues of women the ones we have are “nobodies” as Rebecca puts it because they don’t have names, ” women are anonymous people who changed fathers for husbands names as they married” while they could have had a great impact on history behind the scenes they weren’t given any recognition. Women have always had to push for their power, Rebecca tries to image how empowered women would have felt if we had a city named after women.
