Various studies on women and environment have shown that women play significant role in
natural resource management and they contribute majorly to environmental rehabilitation and
conservation. While addressing some key environmental problems, women play a dominant role.
Women, through their roles as farmers and as collectors of water and firewood, are closely
connected with their local environment and often suffer the most directly from environmental
problems. Women's direct contact with environment has produced them deep- knowledge about
the environment. Thus, they have served as agriculturalists, water resource manager, and
traditional scientists, among others. Women are not only knowledgeable about the environment,
but they are also protective and caring..They being primarily responsible for domestic and
household management, interact more intensively with the natural environment and build the
environment more than men. Consequently, they are more likely to suffer from a degraded home,
neighborhood, and city environment and to shoulder more of the burden that goes with living in
poor housing and communities with inadequate residential and health infrastructure, since they
spend more time at home. But throughout the history, women have been immortalized as
powerful symbols of nature: Mother Earth, Earth Goddess, and Artemis in the Greek mythology,
and Mother River (the Yellow River) in Chinese history. The deep connection women have with
the environment makes them more responsible and initiator in coming forefront when it comes to
the movements to protect the environment. .Over the years we had seen many environmental
issues being addressed by the society initated by the women folk.
