"Power over" (Involving social control and domination) is contrasted with "power to" (involving social production and collaboration). Three hypotheses drawn from feminist, democratic, and regime theories are developed and supported by ethnographic research: (a) women are more likely than men to understand power as social production, (b) social fragmentation and stronger forms of democracy in cities are encouraging the use of collaborative power, and (c) the application of collaborative power helps communities achieve policy goals.
