- Women in Green, Voices of Sustainable Design by Kira Gould& Lance Hosey “Women in Green, Voices of Sustainable Design,” explores why women are more predisposed to be involved in the sustainability movement. It raises the idea that as a product of motherhood, women are more in touch with their environment. The book also explores how connections between certain traditionally feminine characteristics like compassion and caring make women more likely to be involved in the green movement.
