In recent decades the socio-philosophical movement known as 'ecofeminism': has accumulated considerable literature. One salient facet of the ecofeminist perspective attributes the current environmental and global crisis to the educational, political and institutional dispositions of a patriarchal society. Consistent with the ecofeminist presumption is the corollary view that the rape of nature and the rape of women are parallel soda-cultural manifestations of the patriarchal 'psyche' which conditions the way in which both nature and women have traditionally been valued and treated in western society.
