An excellent handling of a complex and highly controversial topic ... It will make its mark on the world stage, inform feminist and environmental activism and theory, and help Canadians make sense of our poorly understood and badly maligned forestry sector. -- Karen Krug * Alternatives, 29:4, Fall 2003 * Maureen Reed has created a significant and sophisticated study that will establish a benchmark not only in how we understand and engage with community change and debate in resource-dependent regions, but also in how we conceptualize gender, women, and activism in those debates. -- Greg Halseth, Canada Research Chair in Rural and Small Town Studies, Geography, University of Northern British Columbia
