NOTES

PROLOGUE

1. As Maria Mies and Vandaria Shiva say, the word “ecofeminism” is a new term for an ancient wisdom. It was introduced at the end of the 1970s or the beginning of the 1980s. It was first used by Françoise d’Eaubonne and became popular in the context of feminist struggles against the destruction of the environment. Cf. Maria Mies and Vandana Shiva, Ecofeminism (Halifax, N.S.: Fernwood Publications; London; Atlantic Highlands, N.J.: Zed Books, 1993), 13.
