Lots of good history and anecdote regarding women gets told in March, National Women's History month, but on the first of April the rent will be due and billions of women the world over will shovel over their labor in various guises to the males of the planet for mere permission to use ground space.

Come along on a walking tour exploring a San Francisco originated idea for setting history on a different course regarding who pays whom to use geography.

The walk opens as a survey of San Francisco social movement history, but quickly evolves into an inquiry into how the private ownership of land value shapes society; from there the walk explores the 1879 San Francisco proposal to socialize land values through a massively adjusted property tax. Even if only publicly deliberated, the proposal would significantly liberate women from categorical economic oppression rooted in gender bias. Fully implemented, the proposal would go immensely far in liberating women and men from privilege-based, real-estate-fixed, second-class citizenship.
