   schema:reviewBody ""In Taking Stands, Maureen Reed draws on the experiences of women who have become part of the transformation and restructuring of the forest industry and forestry communities. She goes beyond the dichotomies of pro- and anti-environmentalism, and brings to light the views and values of women living in forestry communities who seek to protect forestry as an industry, a livelihood, and a community. In doing so, she challenges the assumption that environmental politics and policy making should begin as a public policy debate and suggests that household, workplace, and community relations are important concerns for a socially informed and ultimately successful environmental politics." "Taking Stands provides a crucial understanding of community change in resource-dependent regions, and helps us to better conceptualize the complexities of gender and activism within these communities. Policy makers, social and environmental geographers, feminist scholars, and those engaged in rural studies, environmental sustainability, and community planning will find it invaluable."--Jacket." ;
