During the last two decades gender studies have advanced in Spanish geography, constituting a subfield of social and cultural geography. They have incorporated the international perspectives that understand gender as a construction which challenges the artificial boundaries between the social, the cultural and the economic. On the one hand, Spanish gender geography drew early inspiration from the British and American work but, on the other, it has sustained the Spanish tradition of being more applied than theoretical. In this article, we will deal first with the institutional aspects linked to gender and power within the discipline in Spain; then we will deal with three topics that have been relevant in Spanish gender geography: the study of rural spaces, research on urban spaces and studies in postcolonial geography.
