Synopsis

Academic article on the negative impacts of the mining industry in Western Australia. Authors argue that mining areas have become men’s towns with little opportunities for women and local younger generations. A gender analysis based on ecofeminism and feminist political economy reveals the urgent need for the mining industry to transform itself in order to meet sustainability imperatives.
