The investigation began with a social ecofeminist examination of Doris Lessing’s 1950 novel The Grass is Singing. Social ecofeminism investigates human and environmental resource challenges while advocating for a more civilized world. In order to shed light on the colonists’ hidden motives in South Africa, the research intends to analyses social eco-feminist aspects as they are portrayed in the book. The researcher views the black-white connection, the destruction of the environment, racial dominance, and gender bullying, and forced labor as the primary social eco-feminist components. The study, which used analysis and interpretation of the selected novel, is qualitative in nature. It is important to interpret The Grass is Singing (1950) as a synchronous story, but it dared to reveal how the colonizers’ and colonizer’s lives in South Africa related to the environment. Both the colonizers and the colonized are victims of colonialism, which caused a number of social, environmental, and feminist issues for both of them. The study suggests that future research should take into account applying social eco-feminism as a theory to the analysis of fiction from various African nations, or even other literary works, applying social eco-feminism to genocidal literature; applying social eco-feminism to other literary genres such as poetry, drama, and media literature; and fusing social eco-feminism with other theories in the analysis of different literary fictions.
