"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 nature and holistic knowledge of nature's processes. Modern ecofeminism, or feminist
eco-criticism, eschews such essentialism and instead focuses more on inter-sectional
questions, such as how the nature-culture split enables the oppression of female and
nonhuman bodies. Ecofeminism describes movements and philosophies that link feminism with
ecology. This movement seeks to eradicate all forms of social injustice against women and
the environment. The term is believed to have been coined by the French writer Francoise
d'Eaubonne in her book Le Feminisme ou la Mort (1974). From arguments that there are
particular and significant connections between women and nature, ecofeminism relates the
oppression and domination of all subordinate groups (women, people of color, children, the
poor) to the oppression and domination of nature (animals, land, water, air, etc.)."
