I came across Women Pioneers for the Environment in March while I was searching for books about women environmentalists to read in honor of Women’s History Month. This book introduces the reader to women from all the over the world who took a stand for what they believed in. The stories are brief and packed with a lot of information. I was captivated by the women in Chapter 1, they are actual treehuggers!
This books has a collection of short stories about extremely influential women who have dedicated their lives to righting wrongs that have been made against the environment. Very inspirational and shows that anyone can be an activist if they are dedicated enought to a cause.
