Annotation:
This author offers his opinions on Dordoy and Mellor's book on ecofeminism. He feels that though "materialist feminists," as outlined by Alan Dordoy and Mary Mellor's "Ecosocialism and Feminism" (2000), support many of the important facets of ecofeminist thinking, the authors fail to present themselves as either strong feminists or strong ecologists. Instead they focus on use value, a less radical concept of care than that promoted by much ecofeminist theory. Dordoy and Mellor also focus on capitalist hegemony, a fine topic but one this author feels has already been pursued. The author feels it would be more beneficial to concentrate on grassroots environmental justice and anti-economic imperialism movements. It also seems to him that Dordoy and Mellor have not recognized the true value of "nonmarketized productive activity" within indigenous and traditional societies. Finally, the author thinks Dordoy and Mellor's conclusions seem overly pessimistic.
