The August edition of Vogue Italia features a fashion spread titled ‘Water and Oil.’
I believe that ‘Violence and Destruction’ better capture the content and mood of these photos.
We are accustomed to the sexualization of violence against women. Now, we’re being asked to swallow the glorification of violent destruction of the Earth.
Perhaps, ecofeminists and ecosocialists will have to rely less on dense historical and material analyses to illuminate the connections between violence against women; appropriation and domination of social reproduction and substinence; and exploitation and destruction of the planet.
