Introduces the literature about women and the environment in Canada. It looks at the ways women integrate the social and biophysical settings of their lives, and features a range of contexts in which gender mediates, inspires, and informs a sense of belonging to and in this land. This volume reveals the significance of women's experiences in various landscapes and addresses a number of questions: How are women politically active in developing environmental and resource policy? How are women's positions in the family, the community, and the labour force mediated by the environment? What would a feminist environmental perspective look like, especially in the Canadian context? And finally, and perhaps most importantly, does a feminist perspective enable us to better know, understand, and value the Canadian environment, and if so, how? A timely and highly relevant discussion of the relationship between gender and environment, this book also covers the ways in which both physical and social landscapes continue to evolve.
