Absolutely! Ecofeminism (or ecological feminism) is a relatively new field of feminist theory, and emphasizes the parallels between the abuse and misuse of women and their bodies by society throughout history to the abuse and misuse of nature and its resources by society. The term was coined in 1974 by feminist Francoise d'Eaubonne. Ecofeminism is an intersectional feminism, incorporating theory from anarchist feminists, radical feminists, culture feminists, etc.
