Charlene Spretnak (1946- ) was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and raised in Columbus, Ohio. An author, lecturer, and academic, Spretnak earned her B.A. at St. Louis University, and an M.A. in English and American Literature from the University of California, Berkeley (1981). Beginning her pioneering work in the 1970s, Spretnak is known for her theorizing, scholarship, and activism in the areas of feminism (including women's spirituality), ecological thought (including Green politics), cultural history (including the history of modern art), social criticism, and dynamic interrelatedness. As of 2010, she is a professor in Women's Spirituality in the Philosophy and Religion Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies, San Francisco, California, and a research fellow at The Green Institute, a center for research and policy of the Green Movement. She was inducted in 1989 into the Ohio Women's Hall of Fame in recognition of her writings on spirituality and social justice. In 2006, she was named by the British government's Environment Department as one of the "100 Eco-Heroes of All Time."
