Recent debates concerning gender-environment linkages have focused on women's 'special' relationship with the environment, either as economic managers (WED) or in their links with 'nature' (ecofeminism). This Bulletin moves beyond to emphasize the application of gender analysis to environmental relations: seeing women as differentiated and in relation to men; and paying attention to the links between gender relations with environmental activities, responsibilities and rights.
