Destined to transform its field, this volume features some of the
most exciting feminist scholars and activists working within feminist
political ecology, including Giovanna Di Chiro, Dianne Rocheleau,
Catherine Walsh and Christa Wichterich. Offering a collective critique
of the ‘green economy’, it features the latest analyses of the
post-Rio+20 debates alongside a nuanced reading of the impact of the
current ecological and economic crises on women as well as their
communities and ecologies.
This new, politically timely and engaging text puts feminist political ecology back on the map.
'Moving beyond narratives of eco-hero/ines to nuanced explorations of
identity, activism, and the complexity of environmental justice in the
lived world, this collection represents a high-water mark in the new
feminist political ecology.'
Joni Seager, author of Earth Follies and Carson's Silent Spring
'This outstanding volume at last brings us a much-awaited sequel to the highly acclaimed Feminist Political Ecology. It illustrates like no other book I know the unprecedented coalitions being pioneered by women in regions across the world.'
Arturo Escobar, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
‘This wonderful book brings vital counter-visions and practices to today’s debates about the green economy and sustainable development. This should be required reading for all concerned with the troubling future of humanity on our planet.’
Melissa Leach, University of Sussex
