March 2005
The Amazon rain forest has never been more at risk. Every year, another 17,000 km disappears to make way for cattle ranches or falls prey to loggers’ saws. But it’s not just the environment that suffers when the forests are cleared. The traditional way of life for more than 20 million people is also threatened. But now, the women of the Amazon are fighting back. In thousands of communities across the region, they’re uniting to save their land. And in taking on the loggers, they’re challenging their male dominated society.
