English Abstract

-Climate change, together with terrorism, economic depressions, and mass- destructive weaponry, is a source of international phobia for many people.

The advancement in technology increases the competition among world powers and economic systems to develop their industrial enterprises.

The smoke that emits from the factories, the pollution caused by the industrial projects, the excessive use of green gas result in the increase of global warming and have catastrophic effects on the ecosphere of the planet.

Besides, man’s wrong practices even in agricultural matters are exhausting the natural resources of the lands, and they badly affect the ecological diversity and the wellbeing of the humans and non- humans alike.

Contemporary feminist writers treat this international crisis as a priority and start to devote their writings to address ecological issues.

These eco- feminists believe that their suffering from patriarchal oppression is not different from man’s exploitation of nature.

Through their ecological activism, they endeavor to protect the environment and the planet from the selfish practices of the industrial companies.

Barbra Kingsolver is one of the early pioneers of this emerging fictional subgenre.

As previous studies of her works focus on individual novels, this study is an evaluation of her contribution to eco-feminist fiction in three major works: Animals Dream, Prodigal Summer, and Flight Behavior.
