Ecofeminism plays a significant role to reveal the mistreatments and assaults over the ecology and thenatural means and resources by the advanced countries in the veil of globalization, development and expansion. Similarly, the gender issues can be questioned and examined by observingthelink and relationwith nature, other living organisms and the gender minorities. As a philosophy and movement, theecofeminism associates the suppression of women to the command of nature with the alike masculine placedactionsand performances that are connected to the patriarchal order. Ecofeminism has its themes in literature. The undertaken research focuses on the drama, Juno and the Paycock, 1925, Act 1,(reprinted, 1930) which is enriched with the essence of ecofeminism especially with its Irish Civil Independent war, and socio-political and cultural settings to resist the invasion of land and forms of life in hope for the opportunity of an eco-favored and gender justified world and civilization. The purpose and main objective of the present survey is to dissect and interpret the text in light of ecofeminism in the selected drama by Sean O’Casey. To accomplish this, it is of the essence to explore relevant ecofeminist theory and perspectives through ecofeminist philosophy by Warren, K.J. (2000). The data analysis reveals strong links between social and economic upheavals in deteriorating conditions of women with the interrelated systems of human dominion; among poor people, children, the elderly and other socially insignificant human groups that are damaged by ecological destruction. However, it is found that among all non-privileged groups, it is often the women who confront disproportion,complexperils and troublesmore than men do.
