Fury for the Sound: The Women at Clayoquot reveals the important role of women in establishing grassroots social movements like the one to protest clearcut logging in Clayoquot Sound on Canada's West Coast.
Women comprise 80% of the world's environmental activists. Yet the general public, watching television and reading newspapers, is rarely aware of women organizing for political change. Fury for the Sound: The Women at Clayoquot reveals the important role of women in establishing grassroots social movements like the one to protest clearcut logging in Clayoquot Sound on Canada's West Coast.
In the tradition of suffragettes and the Chipko women of India, who are among the world's original treehuggers, in 1993 at Clayoquot, women of all ages were moved to leave their homes and comfortable lives to enact social change. The fight to protect the Sound, one of the largest remaining tracts of untouched Canadian rainforest, resulted in the biggest single act of civil disobedience in Canadian history. Over 850 people--two-thirds of them women--were arrested.
A peace camp based on feminist principles was set up near the Clayoquot protest site. Grandmothers and young children were taken into custody, women suspended themselves from trees to defy clearcut logging. Personal as well as political reasons for these decisions are explored. Protest organizers explain how women are uniquely positioned socially and culturally to save this planet.
