The development of green criminology as a distinct subject area has in recent years prompted a number of commentators from the field of victimology to focus their attention on ‘green’ questions. This has stimulated its own subfield, sometimes called ‘green victimology’, in which victimologists have contributed insights into the impacts of environmental harms and how those harms are managed/addressed by civil society from the perspective of so-called ‘environmental victims’. Such commentators have often drawn on notions of ‘environmental justice’, which has been variously defined. Lynch and Stretesky (2003) understand environmental justice as not just a single movement, but a combination of at least three different perspectives. First, the authors draw on eco-feminists writers (e.g. Daly 1978) who, from the mid-1970s, began arguing that the effects of environmental degradation fall disproportionately on women compared to men.
