A portion of the White reading titled "Are you an Environmentalist, or do you work?" that seemed directly relevent to the idea of ecofeminism:

"A man did real work with "God-made animals"; a women could handle machines "with out maring her polished nails." Machines associated with women broke a male connection with female nature, thus creating an almost domestic drama. Clearly for Russell, machines broke the old connections forged by male labor." (181).

Thought this was relevent to our current discussion
