Weisman, Leslie K. Discrimination by design: A feminist critique of the man-made environment. University of Illinois Press, 1994.


The author of Discrimination by Design: A Feminist Critique of The Man-Made Environment Leslie K. Weisman, talks about how people perceive the world and how that perception effects their lives.

People perceptions are socially learned through their environments. People’s environment gives them the outline of thinking on the world and the people in it. For example, if you are “poor”, your environment will treat as so. Society essentially tells you your place in this world and that place alters your way of thinking. There is a strong correlation between physical and social space. If one of them is low then the other will be low.
