This anthology is the first such collection to focus on the exclusively philosophical aspects of ecological feminism. It addresses basic questions about the conceptual underpinnings of `women-nature' connections, and emphasises the importance of seeing sexism and the exploitation of the environment as parallel forms of domination. Ecological Feminism is enriched by the inclusion of essays which take differing views of the importance and nature of ecofeminism. It will be an invaluable resource for courses on women's studies, environmental studies and philosophy.
'An introductory text for the philosophical aspects of eco-feminism. It is well referenced, with a useful index. It should be on the reading lists for students of feminism, ecology (of all kinds), philosophy and post-modernism.' - Scientific & Medical Network
