Summary
"In this zine I am arguing that the suburbs are constructed in the media as a feminine space that creates a certain kind of femininity, primarily the dutiful housewife. Also the suburbs is constructed in the media as a space that emasculates men, and men found ways to be masculine the the suburbs, primarily through the fatherhood role and masculine activities such as barbequing."
