Ecofeminism

Ecofeminism is a term that links feminism with ecology. Its advocates say that paternalistic/capitalistic society has led to a harmful split between nature and culture. Early ecofeminists propagated that the split can only be healed by the feminine instinct for nurture and holistic knowledge of nature's processes. Modern ecofeminism, or feminist eco-criticism, eschews such essentialism and instead focuses more on intersectional questions, such as how the nature-culture split enables the oppression of female and nonhuman bodies. It is also an activist and academic movement that sees critical connections between the exploitation of nature and the domination over women both caused by men.

Trees to Save Daughters

In the village of Piplantri in India, where sons are often favored over daughters, the villagers will plant 111 trees each time a girl is born. This choice marks an effort to save daughters and the environment. This is a great movement for environmental sustainability, as each new person will not be leaving behind a significant carbon footprint.
