LEAD Action News Vol 2 no 2 Autumn 1994
Women's Environmental Network
The following two articles are reprinted
Our World-Our Home is one of the themes of "Y Conserve". It features articles about an International Association for Feminist Economics, about green jobs and unpaid conservation efforts. It shows how vital women's contributions are in changing structures for our mutual preservation. The future of this magazine, formerly funded as Conserve by the Victorian Department of Conservation and Environment, is in doubt. The Melbourne Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA) has published several issues. Contributions to support the Women's Conservation and Environment Network are welcome. Jenni Mitchell is the Editor. She can be contacted at YWCA Melbourne, 489 Elizabeth St, Melbourne VIC 3000, Ph 033295188, fax 033282931.
Two prominent thinkers on ecology and feminism have put together this synthesis of women's perspectives, from North and South on the world's ecological state. Ecofeminism authors Maria Mies and Vandana Shiva draw attention to the escalating deterioration of the environment and identify ecofeminist strategies and perspectives. They show how affluent societies stubbornly cling to the hope that we can preserve our environment and continue to over-consume. They argue for a view of progress which makes diversity, not growth, its central tenet.
