This fascinating resource demonstrates ways the uniqueness of womens' lives as separate from mens' can be illustrated using geographic approaches. Examples from a variety of time periods and cultures are presented in chapters covering gendered spheres within homes and communities, women's work within and without the home, women in the city environment, women's abilities to move beyond the home (think transportation, migration, refugees, etc.), women's relationship to nation building and imperialism, and women's encounters with the natural environment. While most of the references are U.S.A. based, enough are global. Provocative charts, line drawings, maps and case studies provide a great way to explore women's space in historic as well as contemporary settings.
