Vandana Shiva: Woman Of The Elements
Woman of the Elements is a testimony of our power as women, a power we often ignore and suppress, and hence allow our subjugation and suppression.
Again and again in life, I have drawn power from the earth and from her rivers and biodiversity. And spending a lifetime of service to the earth and her elements, my own spirit has been renewed, to face the assaults of a violent order based on patriarchal power and capitalist greed.
In reading Woman of the Elements, I resonate with Rashmi’s search for her power, which is a search for every woman’s power, a power that lies within, while being connected to the earth that supports us and of which we are a part. I hope you too experience your power in reading this beautiful book.
