  • Gebaras profound and moving statement of principles of ecofeminism shows how intertwined are the tarnished environment around her and the poverty that afflicts her neighbors. From her experiences with the Brazilian poor-womens movement she develops a gritty urban ecofeminism and indeed articulates a whole worldview. She shows how the connections between Western thought, patriarchal Christianity, and environmental destruction necessitate personal conversion to "a new relationship with the earth and with the entire cosmos." Alongside her stern critique of our consumer mentality, Gebara cultivates a rich garden of insights into our relatedness, Gods sacred presence in the universe, and our daily experience of the deepest longings of the human heart.
