Some may argue that women’s higher levels of altruism and personal responsibility make them more interested in environmentalism as a way to protect themselves and their families. Do women as a gender have more empathy for Mother Earth because of a shared history of oppression? Is it a coincidence that the environmental movement and the women’s movement both gained momentum in the 1960′s from grassroots activism? And does identifying the Earth as a Mother and Woman make it easier for some to disregard and abuse it/her? Join us as we ask tough questions and explore new ground with a panel of educators and activists.
