The diversity of philosophy in exploring knowledge has different directions and different viewpoints. Nowadays, the philosophy behind exploration of knowledge lies mostly in the nature of the interaction between humans and the natural environment based on the ecocentrism philosophy. However, in the struggle for the environment, women also play an important role alongside men and this is highlighted in a form of philosophy known as ecofeminism.Nonetheless, the issue is actually on the structure of knowledge exploration of the woman movement in environmental preservation throughout the decades of their struggle.This paper aims to basically look at the ontology, epistemology, methodology and axiology behind the philosophy of women’s struggle in environmental preservation.This paper found that the women’s struggle has a distinctive contribution that is able to advance their involvement in preserving the environment.This struggle is clear in the context of the structure of knowledge itself based on its ontology, epistemology, methodology and axiology.Among the contributions etched in history today are through the importance of gender in the questionnaire, so that the findings could differentiate between men and women.
