Ecological Feminism


Warren, Karen J. and Barbara Wells-Howe, eds. 1994. Ecological FeminismLondon: Routledge 

Authors: Karen J. Warren, Barbara Wells-Howe


This anthology is the first such collection to focus on the exclusively philosophical aspects of ecological feminism. It addresses basic questions about the conceptual underpinnings of `women-nature' connections, and emphasises the importance of seeing sexism and the exploitation of the environment as parallel forms of domination. Ecological Feminism is enriched by the inclusion of essays which take differing views of the importance and nature of ecofeminism. It will be an invaluable resource for courses on women's studies, environmental studies and philosophy. (Summary from Routledge)
