This book contains well documented case studies and interviews with leading women conservationists from the Third World, and gives a clear account of women's problems in relation to land, water, forests, energy and human settlements. It also looks at the lack of response from international organizations and at ways in which women can organize to meet environmental, social and economic challenges.
