<h4>What is ecofeminism?</h4>

The word ecofeminism can create confusion. People often wonder how it brings the concepts of "ecology" and "feminism" together. Well, ecofeminism actually goes beyond just linking these two ideas.
Ecofeminism connects the systems of exploitations and oppressions by showing how the mistreatment of the planet and the unfair treatment of people, whether based on gender, class, race, or other factors, are intertwined. It is about sustainable living and gender equality. It is about emphasizing the need to respect and nurture both the Earth and all its inhabitants.
A concrete example of ecofeminism in action is the Chipko Movement in India during the 1970s. In this movement, village women hugged trees to prevent them from being cut down by loggers. They recognized that the health of the forest was crucial for their community's survival and that protecting it also protected their way of life and economic independence. This act of environmental and social resistance highlighted the link between the well-being of the environment and the well-being of women.

<h4>What does an “ecofeminist future” mean?</h4>

An ecofeminist future is about creating a world where everyone, regardless of their gender, race, or class, is treated equally and with respect. It recognizes that women* often bear the brunt of environmental problems and are also key protectors of nature in many cultures. So, an ecofeminist future aims to address both inequalities and environmental issues together, understanding that they are connected, and so need to be the solutions.
