A coherent and thoughtful exploration of the themes, approaches, and dilemmas of feminist geographic research. A delightful, clear, and intelligent review of a diverse literature. Geography , Theory and Philosophy. A highly regarded feminist geographer, McDowell takes readers through various approaches and arguments in the field, as well as different interpretations of key terms, such as feminism, sex, gender, and patriarchy.
She examines the gendering of specific spaces and places ranging from the workplace to the nation state, and moves easily from theory to practice, in the form of case studies to illuminate topics as diverse as social constructionist ideas about the body crucial to discussions of gendered identity and the geographies of residence and wage labor in various locations around the globe. What do geographers have to say about social relations between men and women, migration and travel, borders and boundaries, place and nonplace in a literal and metaphorical sense?
As she considers these issues in depth, McDowell reveals how feminist geography helps explain the huge disruptions and transformations that have altered the connections between people and places in recent years. An accessible, wide-ranging, and thorough introduction to feminist perspectives on geography. A rich and compelling testament to a rapidly maturing field of study, a field for whose very existence we all owe Linda McDowell and other pioneers a great deal of gratitude.
Challenges of feminist geography are also embedded in the subfield itself. The epistemology of feminist geography argues that the positionalities and lived experiences of the geographers are as central to scholarship as what is being researched. In this way, feminist geographers must maintain diverse identities to fully engage with the discipline. Linda Peake and Gill Valentine point out that, while feminist geography has addressed gender issues in more than twenty-five countries across the world, scholarship in the field of feminist geography is primarily conducted by white female scholars from institutions in the Global North.

Feminist geographers draw upon a broad range of social and cultural theory, including psychoanalysis and post-structuralism , to develop a fuller understanding of how gender relations and identities are shaped and assumed. This has led to the fundamental rethinking of gender and the contradictions and possibilities presented by the seeming instability and insistent repetitions of gender norms in practice. The focus on multiple identifications and the influence of post-structuralist and psychoanalytic theories has allowed feminist geographers to enter into dialogue with other strands of critical geography.
This open dialogue, however, has also allowed tensions to build between geographers in the United States and geographers in Great Britain. Theoretical differences among feminist geographers are more obvious than in the past, but since , the national differences between America and British geographers have begun to diminish as both parties pursue new directions.
