Francoise d'Eaubonne

Françoise d'Eaubonne (1920-2005) was a leading French feminist who is credited with coining the term “eco-feminism" in 1974. A former member of the French Communist Party, she co-founded the Front homosexual d’action révolutionnaire in 1971 and created the Ecology-Feminism Center in Paris in 1972. d’Eaubonne was the author of more than 50 works, including novels, poetry, and essays. Her historical novel Comme un vol de gerfauts (1947) was translated into English as A Flight of Falcons, and extracts from Feminism or Death appeared in English in the anthology New French Feminisms in 1981.
