There are theses on Plato’s pro-feminism or egalitarian signs that there was an example of women’s emancipation in the Republic in the opposite of the traditions of Ancient Greece with the inclusion of women in the protective class. However, Plato is the same one who adds a position for women below the man and even between human and animal from his Meno to his Laws. This research will examine whether Plato thinks about the survival of the state or the position of women while talking about female protectors in the Republic. Thus, an analysis will be made on how Plato is involved in the works of women and how academic channels influenced by Plato approach women protectors. In turn, the contents of the prerequisites for the acceptance of women protectors in Plato will be discussed.
