How is gender linked to geography? Do men and women live different lives in different parts of the world? And if gendered attributes are socially constructed, then how do femininity and masculinity vary over time and space? These are some the questions Linda McDowell explores in this accessible, wide-ranging, and thorough introduction to feminist perspectives on geography.
