Abstract and Keywords
This section examines feminist political ecology as an interdisciplinary academic field and a political movement and highlights the importance of gendered knowledge, rights, and politics in the analysis of environmental issues. It shows how feminist political ecology has been shaped by women’s involvement in the environmental movement and advocacy of environmental issues at the UN level. The first article analyzes how feminists in academe and in social movements address environmental issues related to peasant struggles, food sovereignty, climate, and indigenous rights. The second focuses on the climate-justice debate and the gender and climate change tribunals held in such countries as Uganda, Bangladesh, India, and Brazil that gave local women the opportunity to challenge the model of creating climate change through narratives of restorative justice. The third looks at the history of sustainable livelihoods in South Asia and how feminists have introduced a gender perspective into political ecology movements.
