Women And Country
Original title: Mujeres y campo
Author: María Sánchez
A personal essay about women and the countryside, intertwining the author’s personal story and those of her mother, grandmother and great-grandmothers.
Women and Country addresses important issues such as feminism, extensive livestock farming, environmental policies and the problems of depopulation. It explores how rural life and the countryside have been forgotten; legends and folklore; the relationship between humans and animals; and the dominance of male voices in rural narratives.
Lyrically written in first person, this is a groundbreaking essay about the relationship between society and the pastoral world.
