Gendered Injustice: Navajo Livestock Reduction in the New Deal Era

  title={Gendered Injustice: Navajo Livestock Reduction in the New Deal Era},
  author={Marsha Weisiger},
  journal={Western Historical Quarterly},
Navajo livestock reduction illuminates the gendered politics of conservation and the crucial contribution of women in resisting environmental injustice. In developing programs to halt soil erosion on the Navajo Reservation, the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Soil Conservation Service made matters worse, largely because they ignored the importance of women as livestock owners. Women's resistance helped bring an end to stock reduction and the conservation program.
