Women & The Environment

Environment: Introduction

Women have always been closely linked to the environment, aptly named ‘Mother Nature’, and we see this reflected in our nurturing personalities, and in our very own bodies, programmed to mimic the seasons, a constant cycle of growth and restoration, spring and winter.

The female identity has historically always found itself entwined with nature, stretching from the Greek goddess Demeter, of growth and the harvest, to modern views on Ecofeminism, and young activist girls like Greta Thunberg.

Often, it is vital to reflect on the connection between the female position in society and the relevance and importance of the environment, especially as we move into a new age of artificiality trumping nature.
