Maptime AMS

A practical introduction to feminist cartographies

Feminist cartographies can be defined as the (often) visual expression of spatial information that intentionally and explicitly addresses questions of power, inequality, representation, and ethics. A map may be feminist in terms of content, form, and/or process. In this activity, you will create your own feminist maps beginning with icon design.
