Reviews

"Women Reclaiming Sustainable Livelihoods is a timely, well-edited collection of essays that explores women's roles in, and relationship to, the sustainable development ne´e environmental movement . . . It unpacks the mainstream assumptions that negatively influence what Harcourt and the authors of the collection argue are truly sustainable approaches to women's and men's livelihoods." - Signs
