Ecofeminism

The term Ecofeminism is used to describe a feminist approach to understanding ecology. Ecofeminist thinkers draw on the concept of gender to theorize on the relationship between humans and the natural world. The term was coined by the French writer Françoise d'Eaubonne in her book Le Féminisme ou la Mort (1974). Today, there are many intepretations of ecofeminism and how it might be applied to social thought, including: ecofeminist art, ecofeminist theory, social justice and political philosophy, religion, contemporary feminism and poetry. As there are several different types of feminism and different beliefs held by feminists, there are different versions of ecofeminism.

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.
