"The challenge is to transform human laws to match natural laws, not vice versa. The linear nature of industrial production must be transformed into a cyclical system. Those who watch carefully -- onaanaagadawaabandanaawaa -- know that this will require a technological, cultural and legal transformation."

In this podcast, psychologist Melissa Farley explains her understanding of the intimately connected exploitation of women and exploitation of the earth. Multinational corporations and governments designate so-called "sacrifice zones" for resource extraction and in the process they exploit both men and women. Poor men are exploited for their labor, and women are provided to pacify them after what is usually miserable and dangerous labor. Eventually, when the resources are depleted or the land is destroyed, or environmentalists protest, and the resource extraction stops, the sex trade nonetheless continues. In sexist cultures where women can't make enough to survive, prostitution becomes entrenched. Melissa Farley quotes Lisa Brunner, White Earth Ojibwe at the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center, and anthropologist Peggy Reeves Sanday.
