Book Title:Ecofeminism
Author(s):Mies, Maria; Shiva, Vandana
Religion(s):Hinduism
Publisher Name:Zed
Place of Publication:London
Date of Publication:1994
Annotation:Based on their participation in feminist and environmental movements in Germany and India respectively, Mies and Shiva contend that an examination of local struggles against ecological destruction reveals that women worldwide share similar concerns, analyses, concepts, perspectives, and visions for change. Suggesting that these commonalities provide a basis for solidarity across differences, they present a collaborative ecofeminist platform characterized by “a subsistence perspective” that sees social, economic, and ecological justice as inextricably related.
