This episode looks
at feminism and how it relates to our work for environmental justice.
We talked to four
members of our network. Ivana brings us to Bosnia-Herzegovina where they
started integrating the work for gender justice within their own campaigns for
environmental justice. Shenna gives us a bit of an insight on the School of
Sustainability work on power and privilege, giving us another perspective on
equity for all and how we can achieve this. Louise and Sinead bring us to
Ireland where they set up an ecofeminist group. Ecofeminism has been criticised
for its essentialist vision of gender and yet, you will hear how Sinead and
Louise try to go beyond binary divisions of gender with their group.
Do you want to
learn more about all of this? Many resources have been shared during our
interviews. Here are a couple of them:
- The Death of Nature: Women, Ecology, and the Scientific Revolution by
- Active Hope by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone
The work for more
gender justice continues, so feel free to share your experiences and your
resources with us!
