Gender, Justice & Environmental Change
Gendered analyses of spatial patterns, social processes, and environmental concerns represent one of the most important new influences in geographical thinking. Traditionally, answers to the questions posed by geographers concerning the relationship between human activities and our social and physical environments have largely ignored the issue of gender. Feminist geographical analysis, however, is raising important issues within human geography as well as the social sciences in general. Specifically, it suggests that both gender and the environment are in many senses constructed by human activities and human perceptions. Hence, the important links between gender and the environment are central to understanding the human experience.
