Welcome to the Gender and Feminist Geographies Research Group!

We are a research group of the Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers (RGS-IBG).

We promote 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, mentoring events, writing retreats and postgraduate research student days.

We are friendly, welcoming and supportive group. We are especially interested in hearing from PhD colleagues, Early Career Academics and LGBTQ+ Geographers. International in our outlook, we particularly welcome scholars from the Global South.

Please do get in touch with us!
