Women are under-represented in postgraduate geography. Initially, it is argued that this situation is unjust and reflects unequal opportunities for women. After describing the potentials and limitations of data sources, the paper uses official statistics to examine gendered participation in postgraduate geography in Britain through time, within geography and between geography and related academic disciplines. Finally, the paper suggests ways in which the under-representation of women in postgraduate geography can be overcome.
