Woman and Nature: The Roaring Inside Her
Women and nature is about memory and mutilation, female anger as power, female presence as transforming force. It embraces ritual and science, history and imagination, calling up the voices and body of our earth and restoring us to knowledge of her beauty and our own. In one of the infinite false polarities of patriarchy, both the exploiter-rapists and the sexist ecology movement have lumped women and nature together in a view negative for both of us.... Griffin has collected here the most apparently disparate materials ... into an extraordinary collage which, for all the research and hard intellectual work underlying it, becomes an intense physical experience.--Back cover.
