From VfD:

Not notable. Only geography links to it. Essentially useless. [[User:Neutrality|Neutrality (talk)]] 04:23, 22 Aug 2004 (UTC)

  • Keep. I had never heard of it, but a web search turns up enough that it seems like a legitimate topic. 4,710 Google hits, and for a specialized area of socio-political analysis, that's not bad. SWAdair | Talk 04:49, 22 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. I have heard of it. It is an important field within the broader study of cultural geography... (which doesn't appear to have it's own article). AdmN 05:27, 22 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Good stub. I've learned something. Andrewa 06:59, 22 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Although could use some work, if possible. Darksun 09:30, 22 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep.--Samuel J. Howard 13:29, Aug 22, 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Not a very good stub IMHO. I'd never heard of "feminist geography," but Googling turns up a ton of hits (4800), mostly relevant, and many with very respectable academic pedigrees. A legitimate placeholder for a legitimate topic. [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 23:31, 22 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep: I agree with Dpbsmith. Avant garde cartography and geography took off in the 1980's, and it's very interesting. I'm left a bit cold by this description, but I have such deep seated doubts about the appellation that I think the interested and trained parties are the only ones who can improve the stub. (I think Foucault's Power/Knowledge was, in fact, a series of talks with some cartographers.) Geogre 01:12, 23 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Masculine chauvinistic porcine that I am, to me, the phrase "feminist geography" evokes the Cole Porter lyric: "I love the looks of you, the lure of you,/I'd love to make a tour of you,/The eyes, the arms, the mouth of you,/The east, west, north, and the south of you." Oink, oink. [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 01:35, 23 Aug 2004 (UTC)
And I just think of John Donne: "O my America, my new found land/ Safeliest when with one man manned." My doubts about the subject have to do with stuffy arguments about transhistorical subjective states and assumptions of essentialism. Geogre 04:01, 23 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep; never heard of it, and my first thought upon seeing the title was that "many feminists object to the current cartography of Florida, Italy, and Kamchatka. . . ." So I guess I learned something. Smerdis of Tlön 14:35, 23 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep and hope for edits. If it isn't made more substantive, maybe make it a section in geography? -Seth Mahoney 19:07, Aug 23, 2004 (UTC)
  • Merge with geography and delete. This poor little stub introduces a term but does nothing to elucidate. It can always become a break-out article later on. Denni 21:44, 2004 Aug 26 (UTC)

It is a notable subject - and a very important area of human geography - the article is heavily lacking though. I plan to have a good go at this article in the near future... --Cooper-42 11:37, 5 September 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Should keep this legitimate academic subject. It does make reference to geography and sexuality. I think that it should link to the page on sexuality and space. These two topics are closely related in their approach. Herngong (talk) 11:42, 22 March 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • I don't know why this old VfD (now WP:AFD) was left open here. This page is not being considered for deletion. As such I'm archiving the old discussion so that nobody is confused about it--Cailil talk 14:07, 22 March 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Broken link. Don't bother to click it. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 07:52, 5 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]


It may just be me, but this seems like an article about anthropology, and not geography. Imasleepviking ( talk ) 15:26, 7 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Branches of Human geography "map" anthropological information - have a look at the article - feminist geography is just one type of human geography--Cailil talk 16:56, 7 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The article could certainly be written more clearly. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 07:50, 5 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Grievance studies[edit]

How should the concept of "grievance studies" be handled in this article?" BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 21:30, 19 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

not in the lede paragraph. Lede mentions that there are controversies regarding this discipline and that statement has citations citations. Additionally, these are addressed in more depth in section 7. Again, This does not belong in the lede. Phatblackmama (talk) 14:09, 20 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Another Sokal writing in Wiki itself?[edit]

Is it a self-referential joke? With the missing predicate, etc. "it is not even wrong":

"Socialist feminist geographers widely attending to the ways that gender relations differ from place to place not only reflect, but also partly determine local economic changes. Judith Butler’s idea of citationality expands on the concept of the lack of agency to facilitate the presence of women within the discipline of geography. In such, we come to the awareness that whenever performative measures are taken to diminish women’s rights in geographical space, the conventions around it adapt around this context to make it seem as the norm..."
