Ecofeminist Movements— from the North to the South

Aneel Salman

Abstract


Ecofeminism grows from the idea that a woman’s ethics are
closer to nature than a man’s and it revalue feminine traits. Women are
seen in sync with nature, working in union with it, while men have a
hierarchical relationship with nature in which their actions try to
dominate it. This view poses the idea that men’s control over nature has
created an ecological crisis in much of the world today. Ecofeminists
look for non-violent solutions to world problems. They consider feminine
values necessary for survival in the conditions of the world's
patriarchy. And while ecofeminists may subscribe to liberal, radical, or
Marxist/socialist thought, their main focus is on ecology—both of nature
and human systems.
