The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Women, Work, and the City.

Wyly, Elvin K.

How do women's travel patterns between home and work differ from those of men, and what does this imply? A detailed 1996 analysis of the gender differences in employment and travel in the Twin Cities area shows that women work closer to home than men. The difference in commuting time, however, varies widely across the metropolitan area. Women's commuting patterns affect regional travel patterns, labor markets, and the way we perceive the city. Detailed maps are presented to show the geography of women's work and men's work in the large metropolitan area.
