SUMMARY Two leaps forward are needed to attain the transition from consumerism to sustainability: a leap from sexism to gender equality, and a leap from fossil fuels to clean energy. The April 2011 issue was focused on gender equality for human development. This issue reiterates the need for gender equality and addresses another crucial need: the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy.
The influence of the patriarchal religious mindset in reinforcing gender inequities and exploitation of natural resources is discussed. If religion is part of the problem, it must be part of the solution. Resolving gender and sustainability issues will require radical reforms in both social and religious institutions.
