FEMINISM OR DEATH [LE FEMINISME OU LA MORT] is the first foundational text of Ecofeminism. Published in 1974, this visionnary essay has been for a long time overlooked.
Almost desappearing into oblivion as the first French edition was out of print for more than a decade, le passager clandestin is proud to release an updated edition of this Ecofeminism manifesto which inspired so many activists around the world.
With her brilliant lively and breathless style, the author demonstrate that patriarchal oppression of women and capitalist exploitation of the planet are triggered by the same mechanism of domination and thus have to be tackled as a whole. Misunderstood by her contemporaries for her ideals to evolve towards self-managed society based on race and gender equality and nature preservation, Françoise d’Eaubonne is today one of the most visionary figure of degrowth.
This classic will be translated into English for the first time and will be published by Verso Books in 2022!
