*Call out for the Women and Nature book

*Women have been making remarkable herstory in green movements in last 20
years. For instance, in Turkey,*

*women are always at the front line against cyanide-gold mining,

has had detrimental impacts in women's*

*lives; through multinationals or their national allies i.e loosing the
commons, via privatization. Today, although*

*many women have leadership roles in these social struggles, their efforts
have been rendered valueless. The*

*level of invisibility for their struggle means that women have not received
merit for their contribution historically.*

*It is time to record our social herstory and pass it on the generations
that will follow!*
