Praise for Intertwined:
"A passionate sociological survey, Intertwined outlines how addressing the 'feminist crisis' within the climate change movement might improve ecocultural balance and planetary well-being."
--Foreword Reviews

"With passion and care, Intertwined weaves together stories of hope, determination, and the transformative actions of women involved in the movement against climate change. It provides a vivid and empowering portrait of a world where resilience and environmental stewardship converge."
--Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, and UN Messenger of Peace

"Intertwined is an urgent, propulsive, and deeply necessary book. It makes irrefutable that the planetary polycrisis is a social justice and feminist crisis as well as an environmental one. Readable and gripping, it surfaces the shocking exclusion of women, in practice and in voice, while simultaneously uplifting previously invisible women, courageous and wise, who are our hope. Superbly researched, providing a survey of the history and present state of inequality, Intertwined also has the compelling power of personal narrative--it is outstanding."
--Ashley Judd, MPA, humanitarian, writer, actor, and UNFPA Goodwill Ambassador

"Mahalo to Rebecca for this powerful weaving of research, storytelling, and heart. Within this insightfully crafted narrative the voices of women emerge, determined and inspiring, courageously facing the compounding crises of climate change and systemic inequity. This book is a profound testament to the resilience and wisdom of women and women-led efforts for climate justice, and their indispensable role in bringing us into right relationship with one another and the Earth. With this call to action, Rebecca underlines a crucial truth: women are the heartbeat of change, driving us toward a sustainable, thriving and just future."
--Kahea Pacheco (Kanaka 'Ōiwi), Indigenous advocate and co-executive director of Women's Earth Alliance

"As I've worked on the climate crisis around the world, I've noticed how many of the great leaders that I've encountered--local and global--are women. This fascinating book helps make clear why that is, and why paying attention to gender inequities counts as a powerful climate solution."
--Bill McKibben, award-winning author, activist, and founder of Third Act

"At the intersection of gender injustice and the climate crisis, a growing awareness and a bold new idea is rising; women and girls may just be the future--of everything. But first, we must pull the ones we have left behind. This book is a valuable leap forward to get us there."
--Cristina Mittermeier, marine biologist, photographer, conservationist, author, and co-founder of SeaLegacy

"It will come as little surprise that women have been systemically excluded from decision-making when it comes to nature. As the climate and biodiversity crises escalate, it is also becoming clear that they are disproportionately impacted by the floods, droughts, and rising temperatures associated with our devastating new normal. But as Kormos documents in Intertwined, women also hold the key to the way out. Weaving together the voices of women conservationists from across the globe, this thoughtful and deeply researched book makes a powerful case for the inextricable links between climate justice and gender equality--and the need to fast-track women's leadership before it's too late."
--Jocelyn C. Zuckerman, award-winning journalist and author of Planet Palm
