This study analyses from an ecofeminist perspective the contrasting worlds of the feminist character in Ursula K. Le Guin’s most prominent novel Always Coming Home (1985) (abbreviated as ACH). The central subject of the novel focuses on oppressed women and nature as inferior to men and how they are dominated in patriarchal Condor. It also examines the interrelatedness of both women and nature through the experiences of the heroine, Stone Telling in two different worlds of Kesh and Condor. Additionally, it presents profound ecological consciousness of Kesh society and the severe deterioration and exploitation of Condor society. This research displays the concerns of ecology and feminism in relation to equality because by equality nature will be protected through the participation of both genders. The study sums up the conclusion that through the partnership of both genders humans and nature will be protected from any future deterioration
