This paper explores Karen Warren's formulation of an Ecofeminist argument, and aims to restructure it in a way that does not equate the impacts of domination on women with the impacts of domination on the natural world. With supplemental elements of Aldo Leopold's "Land Ethic" arguments, I hope to provide a reformulation of Warren's argument in which the dominator is still committed to dismantling these twin dominations. I posit that this commitment may be derived from the harm the process of dominating inflicts on the dominator's perfectionist value and prudential value, an element which remains consistent in both dominations and indeed may move the dominator to action.
