A Shared Garden (II)

Cross-Cultural Challenges to Ecofeminist Work in Religion

ecofeminist, Judy Ress, Ivone Gebara


Religious feminists in Latin America and North America are engaged in an ongoing project entitled ‘A Shared Garden: Beyond Violence—Solidarity and Ecofeminism’. Judy Ress’s and Ivone Gebara’s articles in Ecotheology 4 (1997) provided a useful introduction to and overview of the project. I continue the conversation on the challenges of working cross-culturally to convey another dimension of our common endeavor. Of course colleagues would articulate these matters and perhaps even evaluate them differently, but the following challenges, and others unnamed, are among the salient aspects. I outline them as an agenda for future work, both for this international ecofeminist theological project and for consideration by others who might engage in similar ones.
