This Article argues that a more grounded and nuanced understanding of women's lived realities requires legal scholars to engage geography. Because spatial aspects of women's lives implicate inequality and moral agency, they have direct relevance to an array of legal issues. The Article thus deploys the tools of critical geographers--space, place, and scale--to inform law and policy-making about an overlooked population for whom spatiality can be a profoundly influential force: rural women.
