"Global Markets Versus an Earth Democracy: Globalisation, Feminism and Ecology"

Thursday, April 13
7:00 PM
N130 Business College Complex (Bogue St. near the Red Cedar River)

Dr. Shiva is one of the world's leading environmentalists and a leading 
pioneer and theorist of ecofeminism. A physicist, philosopher of science, 
ecologist, and activist, she has been described as "One of the world's most 
prominent radical scientists" (The Guardian), "The South's best known 
environmentalist" (New Internationalist), and "A leading thinker who has 
eloquently blended her views on the environment, agriculture, spirituality, 
and women's rights into a powerful philosophy" (Utne Reader). Her synthesis 
of feminism with environmental concerns has been of such significance to 
the environmental movement that in 1993 she was awarded the Right 
Livelihood Award, which is also known as "The Alternative Nobel Prize." She 
is author of 11 critically-acclaimed books including Staying Alive: Women, 
Ecology and Development; The Violence of the Green Revolution: Third World 
Agriculture, Ecology and Politics; Biopiracy: The Plunder of Nature and 
Knowledge; and Monocultures of the Mind: Perspectives on Biodiversity and 
Biotechnology.
