This paper analyses the notion of otherness from the perspective of gender difference. It focuses on Simone Weil, the French militant philosopher whose working experience in a factory is fundamental to her thought, and Antigone, Sophocles’ heroin who rebels against the Theban king Creon’s regime. They propose a female model of otherness which is a political project above all, not based on power and force, but on coexistence and justice. This means that Simone Weil and Antigone consider otherness not simply a culture of difference and interpersonal relation, but essentially a duty towards human beings.
