This virtual paper session will explore feminist geography questions, including capitalist patriarchy, women farmers’ impact in agriculture, social networks among urban farmers in India, the removal and resettlement of pastoralists from pasture lands in Inner Mongolia and perceptions of land tenure among farmers in Ghana. Collectively, the papers examine how gender underpins land tenure and labor in agricultural systems across geographies. The authors highlight how political, social, and economic relationships inform outcomes linked to climate change and environmental sustainability at multiple scales.
