Description

... provides readers with a much-needed cross-cultural and multidisciplinary perspective on ecofeminist activism and scholarship." --Iris

... a very important contribution to the literature on ecological feminism." --Ethics

I think the unique collection of so many different perspectives will help to push readers out of their disciplinary views and work to bring theory and practice together in meaningful ways.... an excellent resource for scholars and teachers..." --Teaching Philosophy

Here the potential strengths and weaknesses of the growing ecofeminist movement are critically assessed by scholars in a variety of academic disciplines and vocations, including anthropology, biology, chemical engineering, education, political science, recreation and leisure studies, sociology, and political organizing.
