What is Ecofeminism?

29.12.2017 / Created by (EMWF)

In this article, Gitte Pedersen explains the history, philosophy and politics of socialist ecofeminism.

Environmental and ecological movements and even Eco socialism tend to overlook the fact that there is a connection between the capitalist patriarchate, the male dominance and the suppression of women in society and the ecological crisis.  On the other hand, women’s movement and feminism have a tendency to overlook environmental and ecological problems. Therefore, a combination of ecology and feminism is necessary – ecofeminism. Ecofeminism is both an anti-globalization movement as an ideological critique that draws on women’s historical experiences with socially reproductive work. In addition, ecofeminism is also an academic discipline with threads to feministic or care economy.
