This new volume critically engages with ecofeminist scholarship and defines ecofeminism as a multidisciplinary project.

Feminist Ecologies: Changing Environments
in the Anthropocene (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018) explores a variety of perspectives on ecofeminism through case studies in diverse areas, such as the arts, politics, and the economics of the mining industry.

'As this extraordinary collection of writings decisively demonstrates, feminist theory’s fundamental commitment to equality and justice make ecofeminism the most powerful intellectual framework for tackling the increasingly complex and urgent manifestations of the global environmental crisis... Feminist Ecologies will be an invaluable resource for thinking, teaching, and acting responsibly in and about the Anthropocene.’
—Una Chaudhuri, Professor of English, Drama
and Environment Studies at New York University, USA
