dc.description In this essay, the author approaches the question \"Does Nature Have Rights ? \" from an ecofeminist perspective, using Aeschylus\' The Eumenides as emblematic of resignifying woman/nature as nonsubject, and working primarily from Val Plumwood\'s Feminism and the Mastery of Nature, with reference to the work of Grosz, Irigaray, Lovelock and others. She considers ontologies of nature as \"intentional,\" \"living\" and as a \"being\" entitled to rights, and weighs the question of revisiting metaphysics in developing an account of nature that would yield an ethos favorable to the health of planet Earth. This account refers to what Irigaray has called \"another pannisia of the divine.\"
