Ecofeminism associates the need to recognise and valorise women’s essential contributions to social repro-duction with an analogous need to recognise and valorise the contributions of the biosphere and lifeworld in all their complexity and interdependence. With the planetary ecosystem at risk of being radically destabilised by global heating such combined recognition cannot merely be cultural, it must take the form of political change, but how? Veterans of the feminist and ecological struggles like Ariel Salleh and Mary Mellor identify capitalism as the main force perpetuating not only patriarchy, not to mention racism and homophobia but also an alienated and extractive attitude to the planet which is threatening human survival.
