Summary/Abstract: This paper attempts to determine the axiological space in Polish women’s poetry. It is the experience of a subject existing between universalism and individualism that defines female axiology. Based on the poetry by Justyna Bargielska, Beata Patrycja Klary, Krystyna Miłobędzka, and Julia Fiedorczuk, the author delineates two axiological spaces: motherhood, especially the experience of miscarrying or giving birth to a sick baby, and eco-subjectivity. She demonstrates that both attitudes – maternal and ecological – display similar characteristics, which revolve around the triad of values: children, women, and animals.
