Notes Ecopolitology, "During much of the 20th century, environmental activism was closely tied to feminism. Since then, many strong women have been at the forefront of environmentalism. Whether advocating animal rights or raising awareness about toxins in our environment, women like Jane Jacobs have had a powerful impact on the environmental movement."
