Description

The connection between Women and Nature is a thing to consider. Nature is feminized because it is seen as possessing the same traits as women at many periods. Women were seen as being domestic, pious, ethical, pure, gentle, kind, graceful, simple and beautiful. This was according to the nature of separate spheres: men and women were fundamentally different in terms of their qualities as men were seen as hard-working, industrial, rational, assertive, independent and proud; none of which is easily connected with nature. Therefore nature was seen as the epitome of all the characteristics that women possess.
