Marti Kheel's Nature Ethics: An Ecofeminist Perspective

Monday, 27 June 2011
11:00 PM - 1:00 AM


In her ground-breaking book, Nature Ethics: An Ecofeminist Perspective, Marti Kheel explores the underlying worldview of leading figures in the field of "nature ethics" (more commonly known as "environmental ethics"). Examining the influence of gender on environmental thought, she critiques an orientation which seeks to save the “Wolf” by killing wolves. Kheel offers a reminder that nature ethics must include empathy and care for individual animals as well as concern for larger wholes like “species,” “the ecosystem” or “the land.”


Marti Kheel is a prominent writer and activist in the areas of ecofeminism, animal advocacy, and environmental ethics and author of the recently published Nature Ethics:An Ecofeminist Perspective (Rowman & Littlefield). Her articles have been widely published in journals and anthologies both within the United States and abroad. She co-founded Feminists for Animal Rights in 1982 and holds a doctorate from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. She is currently a visiting scholar at U.C. Berkeley at the Division of Society and Environment.
