Women and Environment

It's not exactly blogging against sexism, but the San Francisco Chronicle has an article on women actively involved in solving issues of environmental sustainability in honor of International Women's Day. One of the major founders of the modern environmental movement was, of course, Rachel Carson, a woman who foresaw dire consequences if society did not make major changes. The raptor populations would most likely not have rebounded without her work in the 1960s.
