As the number of mineral extraction projects worldwide surges, common concerns are emerging within mining affected communities spanning from the southern tips of Patagonia and Australia to the Arctic regions. Women from diverse regions— including the Andean plains and Amazonian forests, the coastal regions of Indonesia and the Philippines, the mountaintops of North-Eastern Thailand, Indigenous territories of Turtle Island, and the Guatemalan highlands, as well as villages in the Niger Delta, western Ghana, and South Africa—are challenging the agendas of corporations seeking to unearth local mineral wealth. While these women may be responsible for cooking, cleaning, household water acquisition, caring for the young and old, and maintaining subsistence level economic activities, they are also outspoken community organizers.
