TOWARD A QUEER ECOFEMINISM By GRETA GAARD

  title={TOWARD A QUEER ECOFEMINISM By GRETA GAARD},
  author={Queer Ecofeminism and Greta Gaard},
  year={2009}
}
Although many ecofeminists acknowledge heterosexism as a problem, a systematic exploration of the potential intersections of ecofeminist and queer theories has yet to be made. By interrogating social constructions of the "natural," the various uses of Christianity as a logic of domination, and the rhetoric of colonialism, this essay finds those theoretical intersections and argues for the importance of developing a queer ecofeminism.
