Ecofeminism is defined as a philosophical and political movement that combines ecological concerns with feminist ones, regarding both as resulting from male domination of society. In this episode, we dive into examples of how this framework can be applied to matters of modern development and sustainability initiatives.
We also discuss various case studies of patriarchal degradation of the environment- including unofficial competitive international extraction and construction, the tendency of ‘strong-man’ politics towards anti-environmental rhetoric, and the institution of meat eating. Intersectionality and its efficacy as the face of environmentalism is another topic of discussion. We hope you enjoy this episode, as it was certainly an enlightening period of research and an engaging (if difficult) conversation for us!
