Empezó haciendo investigación sobre patrones de
viajes .
 Desarrolló en los años setentas un interés por la
cuestiones de género al revisar los patrones de viaje
de hombres y mujeres.
«one thread of my work was an interest in multipurpose trips and 'trip-chaining', which relates to the
complexities of women's lives, to the combining of all
sorts of activities in the daily time-space path”
“Here we are looking at where women live vis-a-vis
where the employment opportunities are and how the
geographic factors of space, place and location affect
the kinds of jobs that women actually get, that women
are able to get.”

APORTACIONES PARA LA COMUNIDAD
GEOGRÁFICA

«The National Geographic Society back in the mid1980s launched a big effort to revitalize geography
education in schools (for 5- to 17-year-olds). That
effort has been quite successful, which means that
we are increasingly seeing students coming to the
university who have some notion that geography is
not just writing the names of mountains on blank
maps”
