Australian ecofeminist philosopher Val Plumwood dies

Feminist and environmental activist Val Plumwood, who survived a horrific crocodile attack more than 20 years ago, has died from an apparent snake bite, a friend said Monday. She was 68 years old.

Plumwood wrote “Feminism and the Mastery of Nature” in 1993 and “Environmental Culture: the Ecological Crisis of Reason” in 2002, and had been a leading campaigner against the logging of Australia's native forests and for the preservation of biodiversity since the 1960s.
