This feminist essay by Iris Marion Young draws on works from Simone de Beauvoir and Maurice Merleau-Ponty to look at differences in feminine and masculine movement and how that movement is embodied and how it affects the mental and physical space of women.

The women lives her space as confined and closed around her, at least in part as projecting some small area in which she can exist as a free subject.
