(World English language rights, excluding South Asia, sold. All others available.)
This unique, international offering on an issue of critical
importance today, demonstrates how women as activists,
scientists and scholars are at the forefront of shaping
new scientific and economic paradigms to reclaim seed
sovereignty and food security across the world. Women
in the North and South are leading movements to change
both practice and paradigm: how we grow and transform
our food. As seed keepers and food producers, as mothers
and consumers, they are engaged in renewing a food system
that is better aligned with the ecological processes of
the earth’s renewal, the laws of human rights and
social justice and the means through which our bodies
stay well and healthy.
is a world-renowned
environmental thinker and activist, a leader in the
International Forum on Globalisation, and of the Slow
Food Movement. Director of Navdanya and of the Research
Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology, and a
tireless crusader for farmers’, peasants’
and women’s rights, she is the author and editor
of a score of influential books on the environment.
