Book description
Women and the environment have a vast, rich history together, and up until the Industrial Revolution, our connectedness wasn't an issue but a natural way of being. This symbiotic relationship is slowly being torn apart, and nowhere is this more evident than in the Third World countries across the globe. In Women and the Environment this connectedness is looked at primarily through the eyes of the women whose lives are most profoundly affected by problems such as overgrazing, desertification and soil erosion. To walk four hours a day, three or four times a week, to gather enough fuel to cook the meals or heat the home is not something that many of us have had to face. With the help of very expressive photography, this book not only examines the effects that environmental degradation will have on us all, but also highlights what we as women all over the world can do to help heal our life-giving planet.
