Biography

French feminist, who introduced the term 'ecofeminism' (écologie-féminisme, éco-féminisme or écoféminisme) in 1974.

Former member of the French Communist Party, in 1971 she co-founded the Front homosexuel d'action révolutionnaire (FHAR), a homosexual revolutionary movement. She coined the term ecofeminism in her book "Le féminisme ou la mort" in 1974.

Françoise d'Eaubonne wrote more than 50 works, from "Colonnes de l'âme" (poetry, 1942) to "L'Évangile de Véronique" (essay, 2003). Her historical novel "Comme un vol de gerfauts" (1947) was translated into English as "A Flight of Falcons," and extracts from her essay "Feminism or Death" appeared in the 1974 anthology New French Feminisms. She also wrote science fiction novels.
