Increasingly, over the last 20 years, women in poor developing countries have had to cope with growing ecological stress. Food, fodder, wood and water, previously in adequate supply have become scarce, and women have also been deprived of traditional access to cultivable land. Those who left the countryside for the cities now face terrible pollution, miserable housing and poor sanitation and water supplies. This reader tells the rarely told story of women living and coping in these dreadful conditions. It is a book of hope because it shows them to be not passive victims but courageous fighters and organizers in the fact of "natural" disaster, uncaring bureaucracy, agencies and governments whose priorities lie elsewhere, and traditional structures inimical to their needs. The women and their oganizations described here have produced demonstrably effective approaches for more sustainable uses of their resources and environments, challenging conventional accounts of their roles.
