This chapter examines gender-related issues in urban food systems across multiple scales and offers strategies to integrate gender analysis in practice. It builds on Hovorka and Lee-Smith's review of gender and urban agriculture literature in Cities Farming for the Future. The chapter draws research from cities of the Global North and the Global South, using gender as a unifying concept to connect extremely diverse case studies. It contributes to academic and policy-oriented discussions about urban food systems by connecting issues at multiple scales to provide a snapshot of the complex relationship between gender and urban food systems. The chapter also draws on the concept of a 'feminist foodscapes framework' to emphasize the social justice questions at the heart of urban food security. It concludes with reflections on the practical benefits to food security programming that can result from a broad conceptualization of the links between gender inequality and food insecurity in cities.
