The Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights created this bibliography to provide a guide to the landscape of academic literature on ecofeminism, although there is also a brief final section of non-academic sources.

This bibliography includes foundational texts in the field, critical discourse on the field, and exploration of fields in conversation with ecofeminism, including: ecological feminism; feminist environmentalism; critical ecological feminism; critical feminist eco-socialism; gender and the environment; queer ecologies; global feminist environmental justice; and ecowomanism, which “centers the perspectives of women of African descent and reflects upon these women's activist methods, religious practices, and theories on how to engage earth justice. As a part of the womanist tradition, methodologically ecowomanism features race, class, gender intersectional analysis to examine environmental injustice around the planet” (Harris 2016). With a few exceptions, this bibliography does not cover ecofeminist literary criticism, nor does it cover the ecofeminist animal rights discourse. The Consortium has produced a separate bibliography on the interrelated fields of Feminist Political Ecology and Feminist Ecological Economics.
