Ecofeminism And Feminism

Ecofeminism is a school of thought appeared in Europe in the last third of the twentieth century, born as a response to the male appropriation of agriculture and breeding, ie the soil fertility and fecundity of women taking such appropriation as a result overexploitation of land and the commodification of female sexuality. One could speak of two trends: a) cultural ecofeminism, focusing on the biological differences between men and women and establishing an ideal link between women and nature. b) the social Ecofeminism, which relates the oppression suffered by women with the deterioration of nature and states as producers of both problems to patriarchal values. The Ecofeminism proposes the unity of purpose in the feminist movement and the environmental movement, common goals such as equal rights, abolition of hierarchies … and they said, should work together to build theoretical and practical alternatives.

Vandana Shiva in the book “Harvest stolen. The kidnapping of the global food supply, “explains this trend. Holistic feminism emerged in the nineties led by Victoria Sendon, an advocate of feminism of difference. Women like Maria Sanchez, Montserrat Gutin, Elvira Aparicio, belongs to this current. Feminism of difference introduced in the academic sense of difference and the belief that the academic world should recognize it.

This feminism, the difference begins to change womens identity through a deconstruction of what until now meant Man. De shaw can provide more clarity in the matter. Their work begins with a critique of language and working from home. The difference feminism, men and women are different, claimed responsibility for the existence of women as a separate group, claiming about values and the statement should not be treated as men. Feminism is a proposed holistic supportive of feminism of difference, try a radical break with the symbolic order in the patriarchal system established understanding that proposing a different order, may resolve some of the problems of humanity. No treatment should be reduced to gender or to the rescue of forgotten women, but what matters is that the world changes, not only life, even if you begin in life.
