Intertwined: Women, Nature, and Climate Justice
By Rebecca Kormos
INTERTWINED unpacks the connections between feminism and environmental justice, examining how women and oppressed people are disproportionately impacted by climate destruction and how they are fighting back. Author Rebecca Kormos writes, "Nature and women have suffered a long history together of exploitation and subordination. They have been put into categories, where they are essentialized and viewed as powerless, passive, or sexualized. When we stand up against patriarchy, we are standing up for the rights of the earth as well."

Total eclipses are so awe-inspiring some people rank the experience second only to witnessing their children being born. Reflecting on the stories in AFTERGLOW: Climate Fiction for Future Ancestors, Kiese Laymon writes “We, as earthlings, will be better to the earth after experiencing this book. That is not hyperbole.”
