Description

Applying a feminist and environmentalist approach to her investigation of how the changing global economy affects rural women, Carolyn Sachs focuses on land ownership and use, cropping systems, and womens work with animals in highly industrialized as well as developing countries. Viewing rural womens daily lives in a variety of circumstances, Sachs analyzes the rich multiplicity of their experiences in terms of their gender, class, and race. Drawing on historical and contemporary research, rural womens writings, and in-depth interviews, she shows how environmental degradation results from economic and development practices that disadvantage rural women. In addition, she explores the strategies women use for resistance and survival in the face of these trends. Offering a range of examples from different countries, Gendered Fields will appeal to readers interested in commonalities and differences in womens knowledge of and interactions with the natural environment.
