Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Written in 1979 when the feminist movement was in full throttle, this became a popular work in women's studies curricula. The feminist movement has since changed course, but Griffin is still beating the drum and in this rerelease offers a new introduction discussing where feminism is now. More for academic collections.

    Eye Opening

    Unconsciously I knew that everything written here was true before I read it. What was gripping about this book was the stunning clarity Woman and Nature brings to its subject. The cover art brings to mind something from the Sistine Chapel, though religion in the classical sense is not the topic here. What is brought home here, sometimes as brutally as is subject matter, is how our subtle and not so subtle cultural and religious bias against the human female is mirrored in our treatment of Mother Earth. Not for the faint of heart.
