Most strands of feminism uphold, in varying degrees, the modernist dichotomy between nature and culture.

Liberal and Marxist feminists argue that the traditional notion of a connection between women and nature is a relic of patriarchy—an instrument of oppression—which should be allowed to wither away. For them, ecofeminism smacks of essentialism (biological determinis... View more info
