Representatives of the ecological economy usually claim that the contemporary ecological situation is primarily a consequence of productive consumer activity (Floro 2021; Raworth 2017). In this context, it makes sense to turn to gender analysis, which rejects homogenization, averaging, and inequality in the distribution of natural resources as a cause of gender injustice. Therefore, it is correct to say that the contemporary ecological situation is the result of the consumerism of the modern male-oriented Western civilization.
