In Beyond Mothering Earth, Sherilyn MacGregor argues that celebrations of qearthcareq as women's unique contribution to the search for sustainability often neglect to consider the importance of politics and citizenship in women's lives. Drawing on interviews with women who juggle private caring with civic engagement in quality-of-life concerns, she proposes an alternative: a project of feminist ecological citizenship that affirms the practice of citizenship as an intrinsically valuable activity while allowing foundational aspects of caring labour and natural processes to flourish. Beyond Mothering Earth provides an original and empirically grounded understanding of women's involvement in quality-of-life activism and an analysis of citizenship that makes an important contribution to contemporary discussions of green politics, globalization, neoliberalism, and democratic justice.... authority it is not surprising that many of the women place value on having a technical analysis of the particular problem their campaigns address. ... And you must be pretty stupid yourself if 194 Activist V!/omen Theorize the Green Political.
