SEHS Feminist Union: Today, we’ll be profiling Rachel Carson for Women’s History Month. Rachel Carson was a writer, scientist, ecologist, and environmentalist. She pioneered the environmentalist movement of the 60’s and 70’s. Because of her books and research on environmentalism, the US Senate opened an investigation of pesticides. She also served on the American Academy of Arts and Sciences before her death. She impacted the way the United States government handles environmental crises, and her research influenced environmentalist movements across the world.
