Críticas:

"Women"s work is not done. The design of our place to live (some still call it "the built environment") still follows men"s visions. For most women, the old household drudgeries have merely been replaced by new suburban drudgeries. "We now have women architects - all of 3 percent of a total of 37,000 members of the American Institute of Architects. But few if any of them are addressing the issues of residential and community design that are still keeping women "in their place" and that, a century-and-a-half ago, led to what Dolores Hayden calls "material feminism." Wolf Von Eckardt , Washington Post "This is the missing link buried in our past, essential for our future, an enormously important book for every woman--and man--who is struggling to live on terms of equality, reconciling feminism and the family, which means restructuring home and work." Betty Friedan

Críticas:

This is a book that is full of things I have never seen before, and full of new things to say about things I thought I knew well. It is a book about houses and about culture and about how each affects the other, and it must stand as one of the major works on the history of modern housing. -- Paul Goldberger The New York Times Book Review
