The Colonization of the Female Body

The colonization of the New World is a result of European male supremacy. Through an ecofeminist lens one can see the clear relationship between the way the early-explorers perceive land and women, in a position of self-declared authority. Columbus’s and Vespucci’s dualistic perceptions of the New World were not only anthropocentric (human-centric), but androcentric (male-centric), and in their different works there is a clear correlation between conquering land and conquering a woman's body.
