Ecofeminism

In questo numero monografico dedicato all'ecofemminismo la rivista riprende ed amplia alcuni temi già trattati nei numeri precedenti, in particolare quelli che hanno affrontato le conseguenze ambientali e sociali dello sviluppo economico (si veda, ad esempio, il saggio sulle Grandi dighe in India o il numero speciale dedicato alla Cina), e ricostruisce la riflessione compiuta dalle femministe a partire dagli anni Settanta sul nesso tra oppressione sulle donne e dominio sulla natura, tra patriarcato, pensiero scientifico e sviluppo capitalistico, tra patriarcato e spiritualità.
