    Abstract

    There is a general assumption that female empowerment leads to better harmony with nature, and to a gentler, kinder world. Are Kerala women paying any attention to their environment? I return to the idea that an enlightened female population can be a powerful voice for change. It is not apparent that the women of Kerala are using their enlightened status to take better care of their land, their oceans or the air they breathe. Let us hope that the empowerment enjoyed by the women of Kerala will not stop at personal freedoms, but that they will step up soon to take their share of our collective responsibilities towards our environment.
