Women and nature are same in various ways due to their biological status, reproductive role, and discrimination. Ecological feminism is an organic combination of feminist and ecological thoughts that has been present in various forms from the start of feminism in the nineteenth century, articulated through the work of women gardeners, botanists, animal welfare advocates, etc. Ecofeminism clearly reveals the oppressive structure in the relationship between man and nature, and between humans, enable us to establish a new type of equal relationship between man and nature and between man and man. Hence, ecofeminism is one of theoretical and practical way to resolve environmental problems. The famous female writer Kate Chopin presented audience with a sense of feminism and nature, and criticized patriarchal oppression of women through clever metaphors. People and nature should belong to a whole, which is a relationship of mutual harmony and coexistence. This paper uses the literature research method and the theory-to-practice method, starting from a short story, proposes the application of ecofeminism in literature, and explain the deep meaning of ecofeminism and its instruction role in environmental law. This study indicates the use of ecofeminism in literature work and showed that ecofeminism has instructional effect on the environmental law.
