To many men, words like “patriarchy” and “feminism” are indicators that women plan on laying out a long litany of complaints about oppression and subservience. However, Reweaving tackles the concept of ecofeminism in an evenhanded, creative way by addressing topics that aren’t automatically associated with the movement – a movement that many people are unfamiliar with.
