(p.77) Ecofeminist Philosophy, Theology, and Ethics: A Comparative View

Rosemary Radford Ruether

Fordham University Press

Ecofeminism emerged in the late 20th century as a major school of philosophical and theological thought and social analysis. Ecofeminism sees an interconnection between the domination of women and the domination of nature. This interconnection is typically made on two levels: ideological-cultural and socioeconomic. This chapter surveys several ecofeminist perspectives that are emerging from a number of religious and cultural contexts—those of Vandana Shiva from India, Ivone Gebara from Brazil, and Carolyn Merchant, a North American historian of science. It concludes with some questions about the utility of this effort to interconnect the domination of women and of nature, social justice, and ecological health.

Keywords:   ecofeminism, ecological theology, women, nature, social justice, ecological health
