Women, the Environment and Sustainable Development: Towards a Theoretical Synthesis
Rosi Braidotti, International Research and Training Institute for the Advancement of Women, Ewa Charkiewicz, Sabine Hausler, Saskia Wieringa
Zed Books, 1994 - Conservation des ressources naturelles - 220 pages
This text asks whether there is a specifically European dimension to some of the major issues in women's studies. Among the lines of enquiry opened up: the impact on women of Europe's experience of warfare; the relationship between feminism and anti-semitism; migration and whiteness in the context of Europe's particular colonial histories; the importance of passion, emotion and psychoanalytical theory for the politics of certain European countries; the decline of the welfare state across Europe; and the phenomenon of the single woman.
