Reproductive justice, Intersectionality, Climate change, Feminist ecologies


Starting from the analysis of the logic of extractive exploitation exercised by human beings on nature and the capitalist mode of production, we analyze the impacts caused by this exploitation on the environment and its consequences for the lives of women, especially those in the countries of the global South. Given this, we seek to understand how environmental justice can, and should, go hand in hand with reproductive justice to favor sustainable development as stipulated in the 2030 Agenda, highlighting the need for an intersectional understanding of the inequalities that women are exposed to. We also seek to understand how the logic of patriarchal and extractive power subjugates women and nature to economic interests, starting to systematize Marxist feminist ecologies by asking whether this current allows the necessary connection between environmental justice and reproductive justice. In this way, we understand that patriarchy and capitalism are inseparable phenomena that need to be analyzed together with the environmental panorama because they support the oppressive view that places women as subordinate to men and the Global south subordinate to the North, in the same way that it authorizes and encourages the exploitation of nature  by those who hold power.
