This chapter is an ecofeminist study of the relationship between humans and animals in Chinese and Taiwanese literature and film. It first looks at current vegetarian ecofeminist views on woman-animal connection in American academia and then examines the ways in which this meme is appropriated by pro-feminist Taiwanese filmmakers and writers. It analyzes works including Li Ang's feminist dystopian novella Shafu (The Butcher's Wife, 1983), Zeng Zhuangxiang's filmic adaptation of Li Ang's Shafu (Woman of Wrath, 1988), and Wang Shau-di's ecofeminist animation Grandma and Her Ghosts (Mofa ama, 1998).

Keywords:   ecofeminist views, animals, woman-animal connection, Shafu, The Butcher's Wife, Woman of Wrath, Grandma and Her Ghosts, Mofa ama
