“The language that we use, how we talk about who God is, these are all important issues of how we tackle climate change… We always talk about the earth as ‘Mother Earth’. When the earth is feminine, that is why it is so easy to dominate the earth as we have dominated women for all of our human history.” Grace Ji-sun Kim, Earlham School of Religion
