這一期的國際批判地理學期刊,專門主題為”重審恩格斯的住宅問題”,有Neil Smith的文章,還有我的文章,”台灣的性別和住宅問題”。文章有幾個重點:
一、 女性主義應該介入重建都市的議題,目前的住宅危機,給予婦女參與和改變都市的機會。
二、 都市不僅是資本主義的產物,也是父權社會的產物。住宅問題的解決方式,必須調整生產和再生產領域,協調工作和家務之間的分別,降低個別家庭的負擔。
三、 台灣的住宅問題發展,一直很難有資本主義和階級的分析角度,這和殖民歷史、戰後反共、白色恐怖,還有特殊的工人意識發展有關。
四、 台灣沒有住宅短缺的問題,而是,住宅變成投機的工具。
五、 台灣的住宅問題,處於未知的狀態。因為政府的統計不在於挖掘問題和面對問題。目前比較多的數字,是關於住宅市場的調查,而不是在了解住宅問題。所以,台灣的住宅問題是什麼,是處於無知的狀態。
六、社會住宅運動不僅在於住宅所有權的社會化,同時也是家務勞動的社會化。

Gender and the Housing “Questions” in Taiwan

Yi-Ling Chen

Abstract

This paper argues that the housing system is not only capitalist but also patriarchal by analyzing how the interrelations of the state, housing market, and the family reproduce gender divisions. In contrast to the housing condition of the working class in pre-welfare state Europe, as originally described by Friedrich Engels, Taiwan’s housing system was constructed by an authoritarian developmental state that repressed labor movements and emphasized economic development over social welfare. However, since the late 1980s, pro-market housing policies have greatly enhanced the commodification of housing, resulting in a unique combination of high homeownership rates, high vacancy rates, and high housing prices. This paper examines the formation of housing questions in Taiwan and its impact on women. In doing so it reveals how a social housing movement emerged in the context of a recent housing boom – on that that has occurred despite a global economic downturn – and which could provide an opportunity for feminist intervention within the housing system to transform gender relations.
