Summary/Abstract: The idea of a woman accepted as the “other sex” has been unacceptable throughout history in terms of masculine mentality, existence of a woman with her own gender in a gendered society has only been possible as a “second sex”. The problem is that the demand of the woman to live with her own gender, with equal rights and freedoms to the man, is subject to natural legality without the need or approval of the masculine mentality. Therefore, while it is argued that gender studies have a functioning parallel to ecological cycle and natural laws in the perspective of ecofeminism and it has also thought that labor exploitation, marginalization, reification and cultural capitalism were built on the basis of a particularly sexist discrimination. Therefore, the masculine politics that caused women to be alienated to society evokes the pressure of power on women in the constitutional order, about representation in science-philosophy and art, and in demands for equality and freedom in social life and e.t.c. It has known that this negative discrimination leads to the exploitation of labor, the commodification of the female body, reification of people in general, legitimizing the reduction of women to second class human status with the perception of “second gender”, making the image of women a marketing tool in art, the extortion of women's right to speak and represent in politics, hence the alienation of the woman to her own society and marginelized to it. This alienation problem will be evaluated in terms of gender with the paper titled “Woman and Alienation” and philosophical dimensions of the mentioned concept will be discussed.
