We are happy to see this paper by late Professor Sylvia Chant published in Area. The essay, titled “Geography and gender, hindsight and foresight: A feminist development geographer’s reflections on: ‘How the other half lives: The geographical study of women'”, is a highly inspiring piece that is strongly recommend to students who are entering the field of feminist and development geography.

I am optimistic that feminist geographers will continue building on the legacy of forebears with foresight, such as Tivers, to progress a struggle for equality within their discipline & far beyond
