n this chapter, I foreground the voices of Asian Catholic feminist theologians and activists from the Ecclesia of Women in Asia (EWA), who value the intersection of climate justice and gender justice. I bring their voices into conversation with Pope Francis in his latest encyclical letter Laudato Si’ on climate justice.¹ Although these voices are not a direct response to the encyclical, they nevertheless offer not only a gendered but, more importantly, a feminist counterpoint to the church’s teachings on humanity (anthropology) and, more specifically, on the nature-human relationship that is intrinsic to an appraisal of a much-anticipated encyclical.
