All You Need to Know about Ecofeminism
Western society has been built on the idea that men dominate over women and nature. Ecofeminists believe that society needs a cultural change.
Although ecofeminism first appeared in the mid-20th century, the first ecofeminists were already very critical of the effects of technoscience on women’s health. They also faced the challenges posed by militarism, nuclearization, and environmental degradation. They considered these issues to be the manifestations of a sexist culture. Petra Kelly is one of the most significant figures of this movement.
Some ecofeminists also believe that we must all take joint responsibility for gender discrimination in the workplace and for the unequal distribution of power and ownership.
