Ecofeminism is a world-wide movement encompassing many different definitions, all of which hold that the oppression of women and the oppression of all life on earth are intricately and fundamentally connected.
Some define ecofeminism as the most radical feminism. Some define it as a movement similar to, or maybe the same as, anarchafeminism, that seeks to create a world without domination. Some focus more on the connections between feminism and environmentalism, while others focus on the connections between feminism and animal liberation. Some hold that ecofeminism is an ideology that seeks to create a world on the basis of "power with" as opposed to "power over". Some consider ecofeminism a feminist spiritual movement.

- If you post something that could be triggering, put it behind a cut and label it as potentially triggering. This means no numbers AT ALL when talking about eating disorders or weight issues, no gory pictures that aren't behind a cut, no personal stories about rape, abortion, or like issues that aren't behind a cut, using words like "rape" out of context, etc. This is really important.
- This is a safe space for all oppressed groups/ non-power groups or victims of discrimination, basically. By safe space here, I mean a space in which people can be themselves freely and without fear. However, if your idea of a safe space is a space in which you are "free" to discriminate against or exlude certain other marginalized groups, or that you can say anything you wish, sorry.
- Anybody who engages in survivor-blaming will be banned.
- This is not a liberal or reformist feminist journal. In other words, don't post about things that only effect rich white american women, don't make pop-culture posts, and don't talk about how moving up in the workplace should be everybody's feminist goal. -Check ALL of your status privileges at the door or else expect to be called on it. This means gender, race, nationality, ethnicity, sexuality, physical ability, species, and other privileges. This is not a support group for people who can't come to terms with their hitherto unquestioned privileges.
