RWR Europe Episode 8: Putting the Eco before the Ego

6 July 2017

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 Carolyn Merchant
- 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!
