Stolen Harvest: The Hijacking of the Global Food Supply
Examining the position of women in relation to nature - the forests, the food chain and water supplies - the author links the violaation of nature with the violation and marginalization of women in the Third World. One reult is that the impact of science, technology and politics, along with the workings of the economy itself, are inherently exploitative. Every area of human activity marginalizes and burdens both women and nature.There is only one path, Vandana Shiva suggests, to survival and liberation for nature, women and men, and that is the ecological path of harmony, sustainability and diversity. She explores the unique place of women in the environment of India in particular, both as its saviours and as victims of maldevelopment.Her analysis is an innovative statement of the challenge that women in ecology movements are creating and she shows how their efforts constitute a non-violent and humanly inclusive alternative to the dominant paradigm of contemporary scientific and development thought.

I need to finish this book. It's kind of dense and heavy. I think I stopped reading it because it was easier not to have to deal with/face the content. Read full review
