This essay explores women, walking and landscape, we offer an account of The Walking Library for Women Walking (2016–17), a recent edition of the authors’ ongoing project, The Walking Library. The Walking Library for Women Walking strategically takes its place against a background of walking art in which women have been rendered largely invisible. Our library, bringing together books suggested as good to give to a woman walking, and then inviting people to walk with them, seeks to make walking women unavoidably manifest. We might think of The Walking Library for Women Walking as a feminist walking movement.
