Gender inequality is entrenched in the cultural, political and market systems that operate at household, community, and national levels. Global changes in market access, climatic conditions, and the availability of natural resources intensify disparities in income, in assets and in power among genders. This book aims to explain these gender dynamics at macro and micro levels through GIS and spatial analysis. The first part of the book introduces key concepts of how to integrate GIS in gender inequality research. The second part presents more in-depth case studies, carefully selected such as mapping gender-based violence, gender-inequality in the labor force, refugee mapping, etc.
