Food production is a rarely thought about topic in industrialized countries like the U.S. There is an assumption that our food comes from big farms in the states, but in reality, “the poorest two-thirds of humanity feed the richest third” (Hamer, 28). This paper seeks to understand how this patriarchal relationship of American agribusiness and between lesser developed countries, specifically India, is affecting both the producers and consumers of these bioengineered crops. This will examine how food production is a feminist issue and how ecofeminism believes this problem can be remedied by local knowledge is the solution to the global food crisis.
