Vandana Shiva is a physicist, world-renowned environmental thinker and activist, and a tireless crusader for economic, food, and gender justice.

She has just compiled and edited a new book - Seed Sovereignty, Food Security; Women in the Vanguard of the Fight Against GMO's and Corporate Agriculture - that is an extensive anthology of essays by women from around the globe. They write about the vital struggle to preserve small-scale farming, seed sharing, and local and indigenous knowledge. Seed keepers and community organizers, scientists and activists, mothers and scholars, the women in this collection are dedicated to speaking out against the GMO takeover and advocating for a food system that would truly support the health of our eco-systems, communities, and children.

With contributions by such notable women as Winona LaDuke, Frances Moore Lappe, and Marion Nestle, among others - this anthology dismantles the myths propagated by the GMO industry to reveal the widespread and devastating repercussions of genetic engineering. Highlighting the nightmarish effects of industrial agriculture on both the ecology and the human body, Seed Sovereignty, Food Security is a clear explication, an eloquent protest, and a cry for change.

"Women are not just sowing the seeds of resistance against an agriculture based on monocultures and corporate monopolies, they are sowing the seeds of alternative paradigms of science and alternative agricultural practice."

"Her fierce intellect and her disarmingly friendly, accessible manner have made her a valuable advocate for people all over the developing world" -Ms. magazine
