Taking Stands: Gender and the Sustainability of Rural Communities

This product is not available in the selected currency.


This book goes beyond the dichotomies of "pro" and "anti" environmentalism to tell the stories of the women who seek to maintain resource use in rural places. The author links the experiences of women who seek to protect forestry as an industry, a livelihood, a community, and a culture to policy making by considering the effects of environmental policy changes on the social dynamics of workplaces, households, and communities in forestry towns of British Columbia's temperate rainforest. Taking Stands provides a crucial understanding of community change in resource-dependent regions and helps us to better tackle the complexities of gender and activism as they relate to rural sustainability.
