Geographical frontiers of gendered violence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article acts as an introduction to the suite of interventions which aim to generate belated conversationacross geography on gendered violences. As such, it brings together and formalizes dialogue convened at the Royal Geographical Society with Institute of British Geographers(IBG) (RGS-IBG) Annual Conference 2013 on the theme of ‘new geographical frontiers’. Organized by the Gender and Feminist Geographies Research Group as part of the ‘100þ’ series of events marking the centenary of women’s admission to the RGS-IBG, a plenary panel on gendered violences provided case study insights from the Global North and South on this pressing issue. While far from exhaustive, we explain how the collective of interventions on rape, domestic violence, state-sponsored violence and religious and racial hate crime highlight a multiple set of gendered violences that affect the lives of women and men in different settings.
