Violence against women
and violence against the Earth,
legitimated and promoted by both patriarchal
religion and science,
are interconnected assaults
rooted in the eroticization of domination.
The gynocidal cultures’s image of woman
as object and victim
is paralleled by contemporary representations
that continually show the Earth
as a toy, machine, or violated object,
as well as by the religious and scientific ideology
of Mother Earth.
