Abstract: This article examines the gendered impact of a policy concept, “social exclusion”, on participation in urban redevelopment programs. It illustrates how the emphasis on developing “social capital” made women, as the keepers of “community” responsible for the success or failure of regeneration programs while the same regeneration programs frequently did not meet their needs.
