Abstract

The appearance of feminist studies in geography in the 1970's was an academic expression of the women's movement. Like that movement, the research has expanded and become more complex in the questions it asks and the theoretical approaches it employs, reflecting both new insights and the changes that have occurred in women's lives in the intervening period. Our purpose in this paper is to illustrate recent feminist studies in geography that center on women as active agents. We draw examples from research in both the human-environment and spatial traditions of the discipline. We will also pay attention to diversity among women, for if geographic research is to contribute to empowerment, it must also systematically consider women of different cultural and class backgrounds across the life span. -from English summary
