Kate Raworth wrote a piece for the Guardian that calls attention to the extreme gender bias of the Anthropocene Working Group, which recently convened in Berlin. In the article, she provides a useful map that illustrates both the gender and country of origin of those who make up the group – the vast majority are men residing in Europe and Eastern North America.

I'm a cultural and environmental anthropologist with interests in biodiversity management and smallholder agriculture in rural Amazonia. I've conducted research on agrobiodiversity management, anthropogenic soils, and community-based conservation. Currently, I'm also interested in the ways that farmers rely upon social networks, local ecological knowledge, and agrobiodiversity management to contend with the uncertainties of global climate change.
