Feminism, Postcolonialism and Degrowth
Feminismus, Postkolonialismus und Degrowth
Crucial for the degrowth movement are issues of ecological destruction and the increase of social inequalities caused by conventional models of wealth. One important field where ideas about growth are set to work is development policy - with women in the Third World playing a key role. They are the main targets of micro finance and climate adaption projects. In the workshop we will discuss recent political struggles of indigenous women in India for gender and environmental justice as potential paradigm and ally for theory and practice of degrowth.
