We hope you’re enjoying The Intersectionality Issue, available FREE from Issuu. We had so much great writing and art submitted that we weren’t able to squeeze it all in so we’re rolling out MORE intersectional goodness here on the blog.
Last in our entries of extras is more info on Eco-Feminism. When Sof asked me to write about the ‘Intersectionality of Eco-Feminism’, I realized I had a LOT to learn! In the zine, I make a lot of noise about the ways in which people with privilege need to adjust their habits/attitudes towards the environment and the people in it, but that’s not the end of the story. Women in the global South are taking action to protect themselves, their families, and to try to fight back against climate change.
Check out the video, ‘Weathering Change’, which follows the lives of three women in Nepal, Peru and Ethiopia where they are doing everything they can to make their own change.
Or read about a new documentary, ‘After the Rain’, which ‘portrays four women, aged between forty and eighty, who work as farmers in the country. The women are from diverse backgrounds—Macedonian, Turkish and Albanian—and each has a very different attitude towards their work on the land’.
