dc.description.abstractOpening Paragraph|"She was as pretty as a rose" and "Mother Nature" are examples of terms planted deep within texts and art for millennia, growing a strongly-rooted association between nature and women. Nature can be beautiful, majestic, and striking, so it seems only natural for poets, lovers, and many others to compare it to women, lauding not only the similarities in beauty but the shared attributes of fertility and fruitfulness. These sayings intentionally draw a line between nature and the feminine, yet the source of these sayings usually stems from men. These, along with a plethora of other sayings, are all genderings of nature using the aspect of the feminine, intertwining nature and women into inseparable entities. Women's fertility has been strongly connected to nature through phrases like 'Mother Nature' as well as through themes of rebirth, of trees blossoming, petals blooming.en_US
