Space, Place and Gender by Doreen Massey

The writer in her essay “Space, Place and Gender” talks about her living experiences related to Gender discrimination and objectification in the male dominated society that is offered to women in general. In my response I do agree with her observation where she discusses how female’s economic rates are low then men around the world.
Moreover females are also objectifies being less than men in every walk of life. The image below speaks for it self .
