Abstract : In Algeria, the differences between male and female uses of public spaces are mostly presented as the result of the spatial and symbolic domination of men over women. Although power relations and the conflicts they underlie remain useful for understanding the gendered character of the Algerian urban space, they don’t fully reflect the social transformations brought about by the growing presence of women outside domestic spaces where they were traditionally confined. In a country with political and social tensions, this research focuses on women’s experience of outer space and the new ways of being and acting that characterize it. It is through an ethnographic approach of the ordinary uses of three public spaces of the city of Sétif that we have chosen, as an architect, to examine the way space participates in the production of new modes of sociability and more broadly, the role it plays in the transformation of gender relations.
