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 “ecofeminism-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.
