A companion to feminist geography by Lise Nelson( )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Companion to Feminist Geography shows how feminist geography has altered the landscape of geographical inquiry and knowledge since the 1970s, reframing fundamental approaches across a range of disciplines, including architecture, environmental studies, and geography. Further, it situates feminist geography within the context of geographical thought and within interdisciplinary feminist debates." "The volume reflects the various sites and locations from which feminist geographical analysis is being produced and it includes a systematic assessment of feminist contributions to major sub-fields in geography, covering both established subjects, such as labor, urban, and environmental geography, and emerging areas of scholarship, such as the body and the nation."--Jacket

Putting women in place : feminist geographers make sense of the world by Mona Domosh( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do women and men tend to work in different jobs, in different ways, and in different spaces? Which is more "masculine" -- the city or the suburbs? Why is nature often represented in feminine form? This thought-provoking book uses the lens of gender to provide an illuminating new perspective on the geography of everyday life. Domosh and Seager show how notions of maleness and femaleness have influenced our built environment, the locations in which we invest meaning, and the ways we live, work, travel, and explore. From the arrangement of furniture in Victorian homes to the movements of refugees over contemporary borders, the book explores gender patterns and roles across cultures and historical periods. It is lavishly illustrated with line drawings, photographs, and maps. -- From publisher's description

Will procreation become just another commodity in the marketplace with "designer" sperm, ova, and embryos offered for sale? Will the attention and monies focused on the new reproductive technologies take away resources from infertility prevention, prenatal care, and adoption? If states move to regulate such practices, will this encourage widespread governmental interference in reproductive choice? How will society look at the biologically unique children who are the products of genetic manipulation--and more importantly, how will these children view themselves?This controversial book explores
The state of women in the world atlas by Joni Seager( )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The State of Women in the World Atlas captures the shape of women's lives across continents and cultures. A decade after the first edition of this atlas, Joni Seager explores the shifts that have occurred and portrays the current status of women in relation to such key issues as equality, changing households, motherhood, domestic violence, feminisms, time budgets, beauty culture, girl children, women at work, lesbian rights, women in the global economy, and women in government. Maps, text and other graphics show clearly the gains that women are making - and the many inequalities that persist. Above all, the atlas once again demonstrates that the better the state of women, the better the state of the world
Earth follies : coming to feminist terms with the global environmental crisis by Joni Seager( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What can feminists contribute to our understanding of environmental problems? Does it matter that the institutions that control our environmental fate are constructs of male culture? We have so polluted the earth, so degraded our environment, and so disrupted our biosphere that the continued existence of life on the planet is at risk. but "we"--An undifferentiated humanity - have not done so. Most of the really large-scale environmental problems - not litter on the streets, but the environmental disruptions that might kill us all - are the products of very powerful institutions that control the state of our environment, including prominently militaries, multinationals, and governments. And overwhelmingly, these institutions are controlled by men. Earth Follies offers a powerful argument for looking at "agency" in understanding our environmental affairs. The environmental crisis is not just the sum of ozone depletion, global warming, and overconsumption. It is a crisis of culture precipitated by the institutions that shape modern life. Seager offers a provocative and original feminist analysis of the crisis that focuses on the structures of power within these institutions and the ways in which they are dominated by masculinist presumptions. Seager demonstrates that the implications and experiences of environmental decay are often different for men and women, rich and poor, elites and disenfranchised. Environmental relations are inextricable from the larger gender relations that shape modern life and this fact makes a feminist analysis of our environmental state absolutely crucial. Earth Follies avoids essentialist notions about the "inherent natures" of men and women and even enters the lively debate about eco-feminism and the complicated historical relationship between "woman" and "nature." In addition, the book takes a careful look at the environmental movement and the organizations which have grown from it while critiquing their policies and programs and the masculinist presumptions which are frequently responsible for shaping them. From Bhopal to the Pacific Islands, from the Amazon rainforests to our backyards, Seager exposes some of the factors that link local environmental disasters to produce global crisis. She makes clear that the politics of gender; usually intertwined with the politics of racism, lie just beneath the environmental surface. Earth Follies pulls no punches, but Seager demonstrates that there is too much at stake to stick to easy questions. In marking out the territory for an environmental analysis informed by feminist politics, the book provides one of the most powerful analyses to date of the crisis that stands before us, as well as proposing new and productive priorities for the environmental agenda

Carson's Silent spring : a reader's guide by Joni Seager( )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Silent Spring is a watershed moment in the history of environmentalism. Credited with launching the modern environmental movement, it provoked the ban on DDT in the US ten years later and it has been an inspiration for feminist health movements. Yet the shift in public health paradigms that Silent Spring enjoined is possibly its most important legacy; one that is foundational for changing the ways in which we think about the health effects of the chemical immersion that constitutes modern life. In synthesizing a jumble of scientific and medical information into a coherent, readable argument about health and environment, Carson successfully challenged major chemical industries and the prevailing paradigm that modern societies could and should exert mastery over nature at any cost. This book provides an in-depth analysis and contextualisation of Silent Spring. It also surveys the lasting impact the text has had on the environmentalist movement in the last fifty years. Carson's Silent Spring is the first book to provide a full overview of what is a seminal work in the history of environmentalism
