This Seed Swap is inspired by Emma Watson’s speech at the UN this week. While it still employs the gender binary, which is problematic in my view, and had no mention of eco-feminism, racism, or classism it is a superb introductory step in the right direction for 3rd wave feminism.
Great job Emma for putting and great job to all the women, girls, queers, female identified trans, and feminist boys and men out there helping to make the world a safe and equal place for all life, human and non human!! This one is for you!
What can you do today to spread gender equality and eco-feminist thought in a compassionate way?
