The term “ecofeminism” was coined by French feminist Françoise d´Eaubonne in her 1974 essay ​Le Féminisme ou la Mort ​ and is modernly defined as an activist and academic movement that identifies crucial connections between the patriarchal exploitation of women and
that of nature (Eaton and Lorentzen 2). In spite of the slight alteration of nuance over the years, ecofeminism has continuously inspired feminist authors: in particular, Han Kang and Margaret Atwood, notwithstanding their drastically distinct cultures and literary paradigms, similarly incorporate ecofeminist ideologies in their novels ​The Vegetarian ​ (2007)​ ​ and​ The Edible Woman (1969) to question the morality of patriarchy.

First, however, as Han has stated that she wishes readers would not perceive ​The Vegetarian ​ as “a singular indictment of the [modern] Korean patriarchy​,” ​labeling Han as a feminist author need be justified (Patrick). ​Although Han has never publicly identified with feminism, the common themes shared among her work establish a firm relationship with it. Most notably, ​The Vegetarian, ​ the first Korean novel to ever receive the Man Booker International Prize, has kindled a globally controversial spark concerning violence and sexuality, both of which are essential motifs in feminist literature (“The Man Booker International Prize Backlist”). Similarly, even Margaret Atwood, who is celebrated as one of the most influential contemporary feminist writers, confesses in the introduction of ​The Edible Woman ​ that it is not “a product of the [feminist] movement” but a “protofeminist” work, as it was published before the coincidental rise of second-wave feminism in North America (Atwood X)…
