"World events continue to reveal the importance of understanding how women live across continents and cultures. Using maps, text, and other graphics in this new revision of her eye-opening book, Joni Seager employs up-to-the-minute research and data to show what shifts have occurred since the first edition was published over twenty years ago--the strides made by women and the distance still to be traveled. She explores the current status of women in relation to such key issues as: equality, motherhood, feminism, the culture of beauty, women at work, women in the global economy, changing households, domestic violence, girls' welfare, lesbian rights, women in government. Filled with a wealth of information creatively displayed, The Penguin Atlas of Women in the World is an indispensable resource for understanding the world we live in"--Page 4 of cover
Earth follies : coming to feminist terms with the global environmental crisis by Joni Seager( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 573 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

A companion to feminist geography by Lise Nelson( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 378 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

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 ab
