Aether: the Journal of Media Geography
We are suggesting…a change in attitudes and perceptions, a substantial shift in the angle of vision, a recognition, in short, of the supreme social, and thus geographic, fact that women, as individuals or as a class, exist under much different conditions and constraints in a world quite different from, however, closely linked with, that inhabited by males. The human geographer must view reality stereoscopically, so to speak, through the eyes of both men and women, since to do otherwise is to remain more than half-blind.
(Zelinsky, Monk and Hanson 1982, 353)1
Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Someone calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.
The Beatles, “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” (1967)
