Griffin was born in
Los Angeles, California, in 1943 and has resided in California since then.
Griffin calls herself an eco-feminist author. She describes her work as "draw[ing] connections between the destruction of nature, the diminishment of women and racism, and trac[ing] the causes of war to denial in both private and public life."
Griffin has received a MacArthur grant for Peace and International Cooperation, a
National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and an Emmy Award for her play Voices.
