Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Acknowledging women’s role in the sustainable food movement
Grist - 10/22/2010.
By Tom Philpott – The literary critic William Deresiewicz once identified a kind of rule-of-one in U.S. popular culture: "Like a poor man's Noah, we take one of each. One physicist: Stephen Hawking. One literary theorist: Harold Bloom. One radical social critic: Noam Chomsky. Before her death, we had one intellectual, Susan Sontag, and one only. (Now we've dispensed with the category altogether.) We are great anointers in this country, a habit that obviates the need for scrutiny." … Deresiewicz doesn't mention it, but the anointed one is usually a man. Things are no different in the sustainable food movement.
