Women and Geography Study Group
The Women and Geography Study Group (WGSG) aims to encourage the study of the geographical implications of gender differentiation in society and geographical research from a feminist perspective, encourage and facilitate the exchange of information and ideas with reference to research and teaching in these areas and disseminate information through its publications.
The activities of the Group include a series of meetings throughout the year, newsletters, reading days, postgraduate research student days etc.
The Group published Feminist Geographies in 1997 and, in 2004, published a publication reflecting on the development of feminist geography in the 20 years since the publication of the WGSG's first publication Gender and Geography. The WGSG maintain an e-mail discussion list which can be subscribed to.
