Environment, Sustainability & Energy
Eco-Activism has deep roots in social justice movements around the world, especially feminism. Feminist thought leaders continue to identify societal and cultural factors that contribute to the current crisis in the global climate and environment. From Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, to Wangari Maathai’s Green Belt Movement, women have been at the forefront of efforts to adopt sounder environmental practices. Some have become active because of concerns about children’s health and well-being, such as MomsRising’s campaigns in the U.S. to ban toxic chemicals in toys. As caregivers for their children, families and communities, women are at the forefront of grassroots efforts for a cleaner, safer, healthier environment.
