Religion AND Science Violate Women And The Earth

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 
that legitimates 
the possession, 
and destruction 
of Mother Earth.
