May Book Club: Vandana Shiva’s Stolen Harvest
Welcome to GAB’s monthly book club! This month we will be discussing Vandana Shiva’s Stolen Harvest: The Hijacking of the Global Food Supply. Feel free to use this post as an open thread for discussion of the book and to post any comments or questions you have about it here, but if you’re not sure where to start, here are some ideas to get the discussion going:
- Do you believe that the corporate co-opting of farming contributes specifically the feminization of poverty? If so what viable solutions do you see?
- Does Shiva make her argument clearly and without predilection, or is her argument biased? If so, in what way?
- What role can/should/does feminism play in eco-activism?
- If you identify as both a feminist and an eco-activist, what intersectionality have you experienced personally between the two?
