Symbols of Ecofeminism in Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye


Parminder Singh

Ecofeminism is combination of a philosophical and political theory and a movement which juxtaposes ecological concerns with feminist ones regarding both as repercussions of the male domination of society. Ecofeminism serves as a symbol in Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye. Women suffer disproportionately more and are likely to endure more hazards and tribulations than men. Many feminists agree that ecology is an issue of feminism, yet they opine differently over the nature and desirability of ecofeminism. Ecofeminism roots its fundamental claims on certain beliefs that point to the existence of important networks between the oppression of women and that of nature. Morrison discusses how ‘earth’ and Pecola both remain unsuccessful to produce. The earth’s inability to produce that year and Pecola’s to produce the child she carries in her womb have been shown in parallel, making it a symbol of ecofeminist theme.
