About this book

Here feminist philosophers and ecofeminist scholars pursue the connections between feminism and environmentalism. Topics include the ecofeminist ethic; the role of patriarchal concepts in perpetuating the domination of women and nature; the grassroots origins and character of a thoughtful ecofeminism; the Oecofeminism-deep ecology debate in environmental philosophy; deep ecological treatment of animal rights and the omission of ecofeminist analyses of the domination of animals, abortion, and nuclear deterrence; and ways ecofeminism and the science of ecology are or could be engaged in complementary, supportive projects.

... an important collection of essays for scholars interested in feminism, environmentalism, or both... This is a good resource for anyone who teaches ethics, feminism, or environmental issues. Teaching in Philosophy
