Women and Environmental (In)justice
0.5 Credit

Hours per week:
  • Lecture/Discussion: 3

This interdisciplinary course examines the history and contemporary politics of environmental racism from different feminist perspectives. We consider the disproportionate environmental burdens faced by women and Indigenous communities locally and globally, and their leading role in the struggle for environmental justice. How and why are environmental issues experienced differently according to race, gender and class? How have different communities responded to environmental injustices? How is environmental justice related to reproductive justice, social justice, and justice for Indigenous peoples?
