Ecofeminism is meant to be a strong women's bond with the environment!
The still going devaluation of women at work can be seen as a reflection of an oppressive conceptual structure.
Women are still seen on the "bottom" side, with less value and privilege, subject to the power exercised by men. Likewise, it happens to the environment, poor people and nature as a whole!Karen Warren, an American ecofeminist philosopher, points out that "From the implications of the ecofeminist movement, political actions have led to political actions that have become expressions in the arts. The greatest reflexes were in literature, language, science, and technology, with an emphasis on philosophy, religion, and non-governmental organizations.".
2 ecofeminists who fight hard for the cause:
- Indian Vandana Shiva is one of the most important names of the ecofeminism movement. With a brilliant career, she has written many books and is a worldwide known activist. One of her main worries regards agriculture issues on pesticides and how it's bad for heathy and environment.
- Charlene Spretnak is another fearless ecofeminist activist. She's created the American Green Party and wrote many books. Her philosophy relates modern art to feminism/spirituality, which is present in some of the ecofeminism lines of thought.
