This introduction summarizes the work featured in the themed section of Gender, Place and Culture titled 'Global geographies of gender and water'. It brings into dialogue scholars investigating a variety of gender-water relationships at different scales, including: poisoned waterscapes; fishing practices; and the implications of neoliberal water policies. The authors featured purposefully engage with the multi-faceted ways in which experiences, discourses and policies of water are gendered, and how gender is created through processes of access, use and control of water resources. In bringing these articles together, we have consciously aimed to support inclusive, feminist collaborative work and to prioritize diversity.
