These two topics seem to be popular these days among dissertation and theses-writing students. Why education? I think this is a great sign that future secondary and academic teachers are already thinking about GIS education during their studies. Why women and geography? Why not? Gender analysis has always been interesting, but I sure see fewer analysis on men than on women. Anyway, for those interested in women and GIS, see the GIS Lounge.
