Ecofeminism

Ecofeminism, or ecological feminism, a philosophy and movement born from the union of feminist and ecological thinking, believes that the social mentality that leads to the domination and oppression of women is directly connected to the social mentality that leads to the environmental abuse of our planet.

Ecofeminist writers are, for instance, Françoise d'Eaubonne (who introduced the term ecofeminism in 1974), Susan Griffin[?] (author of the ecofeminist classic Woman and Nature: The Roaring Inside Her, 1978), Petra Kelly (who popularized the union between feminism and ecology), Vandana Shiva, Charlene Spretnak[?], Carolyn Merchant[?], Rosemary Radford Ruether[?], Ynestra King[?], Starhawk, etc.
