This provocative collection gathers essays and interviews from the leading lights of the international environmental and feminist movements to mount a powerful case that gender equality is essential to environmental progress. Up to now, women’s issues have been largely ignored by major environmental and conservation groups, but in We Should All Be Ecofeminists contributors like Vandana Shiva, Caroline Lucas, and Maria Mies help us see the undeniable links between the two. Using specific case studies, the contributors lay out the ways in which women’s issues intersect with environmental issues, and they detail concrete steps that organizations and campaigners big and small can take to ensure that they are pursuing these goals in tandem. A rallying cry designed to unify—and thus strengthen—two crucial movements in the global fight for social justice, this book will spur action and, crucially, collaboration.

About the Author:

Friends of the Earth is an international network of environmental organizations in 74 countries that campaigns for a healthy and sustainable relationship between human beings and the environment.

Review:

“This book is a wake-up call for the environmental movement. It shows conclusively that women’s empowerment is essential to achieving environmental sustainability. This has been a blind-spot for us for far too long. Under my leadership, I am determined that Friends of the Earth will take this issue seriously, build campaigning alliances with women's groups and mainstream gender equality throughout our work. 

(Craig Bennett, CEO of Friends of the Earth)

“You can’t save the planet without equality. . . . We need a new economics informed by the larger picture, an economy that puts women and the Earth at the centre.”

(Vandana Shiva)

“Hope is a potent catalyst. And while our failure to adequately appreciate and guard against ecological destruction fills me with frustration, my hope is not meek or weak. It is urgent and raging. It’s a hope that believes a better world—away from cyclical war, the annihilation of the earth’s treasures and the grinding down of the poor—is possible.”

(Caroline Lucas, MP)

“Women will save the planet, and Friends of the Earth compiled this collection of essays, edited by freelancer Hawley, to tell readers why and how as part of their Big Ideas Change the World Project. . . . While the narratives are specific to each contributor’s local environmental issues, women’s roles universally are often as ‘invisible economic and political actors—economic systems often ignore women’s contributions, and political systems exclude, while women work at the grassroots level to improve living conditions for their families and communities. . . . Recommended.”
