  "Fighting Fire with Fire: Fossil Fuel Industries and the Gendering of Public Relations Strategies"  
(Special Event)

Through Feminist Eyes series welcomes Dr. Shannon Elizabeth Bell, Associate professor of Sociology.

In this presentation, Professor Shannon Bell will examine the public relations strategies that the coal, oil, and gas industries use to counter grassroots environmental justice movements, strategies which she finds to be clearly gendered. Professor Bell's study reveals that a key public relations tactic of fossil fuel industry front groups has been appropriating the very identities of their fiercest opponents: concerned women and mothers.
