In the last ten years, geographers have increasingly focused upon religion as a significant marker of social and cultural difference. Using such work as a base for discussion, this paper maps out some potential avenues for future work about feminist geographies of religion. I draw simultaneously upon existing trends in the discipline, and experiences of fieldwork with Muslim youth to suggest ways in which feminist approaches might be developed in research on geographies of religion. In doing so, I focus in particular upon three areas of feminist geographical inquiry - gender relations, positionalities and emotions.
