Biofuels and women

Much of the discussion surrounding biofuels understandably focuses on their impact on food production. It's a simple, emotive viewpoint - in order to continue driving our cars as we please somebody on a different continent must starve as we turn their crops into 'environmentally friendly' fuel.

But nothing is ever that simple. In the case of biofuels, there's not just the impact on food prices, nor the negative effect biofuels have on climate change emissions but other social aspects, including the consequences for women.
