Ecofeminism as Politics
Nature, Marx and the Postmodern
This book explores the philosophical and political challenge of ecofeminism. It shows how the ecology movement has been held back by conceptual confusion over the implications of gender difference, while much that passes in the name of feminism is actually an obstacle to ecological change and global democracy. The author argues that ecofeminism reaches beyond contemporary social movements, being a political synthesis of four revolutions in one: ecology is feminism is socialism is post-colonial struggle. Salleh’s ecofeminism integrates discourses on science, the body, culture, nature, political economy.
