Farhana Sultana: Scholarship on climate change and VAW is overlooked(2 Posts)
Claim: This study shows that the damage humanity is inflicting on nature is also fueling violence against women around the world – a link that has so far been largely overlooked."
Sultana's response: The link was never overlooked by feminist scholars, it was actually discovered, explained & underscored by feminist scholars. Most folks chose to ignore such research & findings. Again, this is not new information, just more intensified & increased empirical evidence now.
Sultana touches on: Marginalization of feminist scholarship is so commonplace that insights are often ‘discovered’ by others much later.
Some people just do not listen to the female voice, in academia, literature, or general life. Let alone the feminist voice!
In a similar vein, when I was younger I had a boss for a short while who on a few occasions would listen to what I said, ignore me, then literally parrot what I said as though it was his own idea or insight, to someone else, within my hearing. I was too young and nervous to challenge him on it. An older female colleague noticed it on the third occasion and very pointedly gave me credit and I have always remembered her for it.
I think it is often interesting to look at a man's bookshelf and see how many books are on there that are authored by women.
