The recent growth in critical geography suggests this may be a ‘critical’ time for raising issues about the intersections between feminist and critical geography. This is not the first time these issues have been aired. For example, the Women and Geography Study Group (1997: 49–85) questions whether feminist geographers ought always to accord primacy to gender as the central analytical category or whether there are instances where gender ought to be decentred and destabilized. My aim in this commentary is to (re)visit some of these arguments in relation to recently published feminist geographical research.
