Subject: RE: Women and the environment readings?


I'm not sure if anyone has recommended this already -- I'm new to the mailing list, hi :-) -- but Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things fits the theme in some ways. Her later political writing definitely fits the theme, especially her essays about the Big Dams of India. It's also freely available on the web (Google is your friend :-)).
