Women Who Walk is a new network for women who use walking in their creative or academic practice. This short paper will outline the network’s aims and current developments within the context of the Peregrinations Walking and Landscape Research Group. There is good reason to believe that women who walk alone are more vulnerable than men who do so (Solnit: Wanderlust, 2001). Will Self refers disparagingly to the psychogeographic fraternity of middle-aged men in Gore-Tex (Self: Psychogeography, 2007). Women who walk in this way, in Gore-Tex or otherwise, are behaving outside societal norms, putting one foot in front of another, asserting independence. The WWW network seeks to highlight and connect women engaged in walking-related practice and research, promote their work and share opportunities and projects within a supportive community. Established following a tentative foray on Twitter in November 2015, Women Who Walk has grown to a membership of over 120 walking artists, writers, psychogeographers, site-specific performers and academics (as of Feb 2016). Although many members are based in the UK, the network includes women from Europe, the US, Canada, Australia, Egypt and Argentina. \ud www.women-who-walk.org #womenwhowalknet
