Terry Tempest Williams : Ecofeminist, storyteller, activist
Indiana University of Pennsylvania
This study elucidates the role of Terry Tempest Williams as an ecofeminist and activist through her growing body of written work, interviews, and environmental activities. This examination centers Williams as a voice speaking against pollution that threatens lives and disrupts ecosystems, denouncing destruction of wild life, working to preserve wilderness, taking a position against business and governmental programs that endanger the natural environment, and involving herself in critical health issues created by humankind's imprudent actions. Williams's environmental philosophy has been shaped and defined by her background as a Mormon.
