Dismantling the Patriarchy: Thriving as an Ecosystem

“Feminist thinking reminds us that everyday stories are important, that patriarchal accounts of history have systematically devalued the worth of anyone who does not support the dominant narrative of Man conquering Nature.
The nature-culture debate has objectified women and animals similarly, pitting them against Culture, Progress and Development in ways that have led many to attempt a separation from our animal brothers and sisters and use the obvious physical differences that divide us as a jumping off point to justify human exceptionalism and superiority.”
