Abstract :This paper explores the potential of ecological feminism (ecofeminism) to transcend patriarchal societies, which promote capitalistic development,and to construct an alternative society with ecologically sustainable development. Feminism has a great potential since it has multiple branches such as Marxist feminism,Socialist feminism,Cultural feminism,Radical feminism and so on. Among these branches,ecofeminism has been severely criticized by other feminist branches that have reproached it for regarding motherhood that some ecofeminists affirm as“essential."Particularly,this is the case with Japan where ecofeminism sank into oblivion while ecofeminism in the Western and developing countries has persisted even under biting criticism. This paper analyzes women soldiers in Hollywood films to prove both war and military institutions to be the epitome of patriarchy in which women's human rights and environment have been oppressed and violated in order for men to maintain masculine power and wealth. Our argument concludes that ecofeminism maintains the potential of rectifying every kind of discrimination by subverting patriarchal capitalist system when other feminist groups start cooperating with ecofeminist activists.
