Gender and Political Environmental Movements

In this panel conversation, we will investigate how seemingly ‘progressive’ environmental discourses often end up perpetuating gender, race, and class vulnerabilities. As feminist political ecologists, panelists’ have examined how gendered knowledge mediates our understanding of nature in academic, political and everyday discourses. This conversation will specifically interrogate how environmental policy-making excludes communities in decisions that affect their everyday lives. By re-focusing our attention on gendered knowledge production, speakers will examine how we can build more nuanced political environmental movements.
