Dangerous Intersections: Feminist Perspectives on Population, Environment, and Development
Jael Miriam Silliman, Ynestra King
South End Press, 1999 - Social Science - 283 pages
Dangerous Intersections offers a multicultural, international scope on the major global issues of the dar: environment, development, and population control. This collection presents crucial alternative voices and appoaches to the short-sighted policies supported by mainstream politicians and nongovernmental organizations alike--policies that focus on fertility of poor women of color in the North and South as the primary threat to the ecological viability of the planet.
