Ecofeminist Natures: Race, Gender, Feminist Theory and Political Action Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'Ecofeminist Natures' analyzes ecofeminist understanding of nature, gender, and race to evaluate their effects on movement coalitions and environmental consciousness.

Synopsis:

"Ecofeminist Natures" is the first book-length historical treatment of ecofeminism as a US social movement. Examining the development of ecofeminism from the 1980s antimilitarist movement to an internationalist ecofeminism in the 1990s. Sturgeon explores the ecofeminist notions of gender, race, and nature. She moves from detailed historical investigations of important manifestations of US ecofeminism to a broad analysis of international environmental politics.

Using original research on ecofeminist actions and organizations, "Ecofeminist Natures" ranges from images of the "Moral Mother" in ecofeminist antimilitarism, to the idea of "indigenous women" as "ultimate ecofeminists," to the deployment of a white Goddess, to the attempt to construct a "women's voice" at the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development. It is a nuanced and critical evaluation of an important social movement.
