Environmentalism and Gender

By Hava Tirosh-Samuelson

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), June 2008

By investigating the ways in which negative constructions of femininity and hence of women's subordinate roles, identities, and material circumstances were interwoven with the devaluation of nature, the historical work of ecofeminists set the stage for philosophical inquiry, and also suggested connections between male-dominated science, technology, and the destruction of the natural world, and the oppression of women.
