Abstract [en]

Time-geography has by some feminist scholars been accused not taking gender relation, domination or power in consideration when analyzing the use of time and space. In this paper we argue that time-geography provides a useful set of analytical tools which successfully collaborate with social science theory as feminist studies. In a project called “Re-reading time-geography from a feminist perspective”, labour force mobility is, specially commuting, one important issue, for analysing women’s time-space use and identify what constraints might be found in organizing every-day life.

We put emphasis on that time-geography might provide feminist studies with a close, empathic and micro-levelled interventional approach in order to make obstacles and constraint visible and thereby changeable. This paper is based on previous and ongoing research on commuting and transport. We hope to prove why time-geography should be reconsidered as an approach with several sets of useful methods to describe and analyse women’s every-day life’s struggles and possibilities in times when mobility and transports has become an undisputed factor of everyday life.
