The ongoing processes of neoliberalisation in universities entail an increase of competition based on the logic of markets, the introduction of managerial procedures of assessment and requirements of accountability alongside with the substitution of private for public funding. These processes have a deep impact on the perceptions and practices related to the professional career of women geographers in Geography departments in Spain, an increasingly competitive and masculine space. The article pays particular attention to the strategies and practices of women with regard to the conciliation of professional and family life as well as to their promotion and to access to power positions. Attention is also paid to the experience of men in the same context in order to sketch a comparison of men and women's careers. The research is based on a qualitative analysis mainly of in-depth interviews. © SRGB.
