In this context, the body is not only a biological organism, but also opposing practices reflected in different religions, thoughts and philosophies. There is no doubt that all religions have a body philosophies and practices. In the traditional period, the body showed itself in practice and was shaped under the influence of religions and traditions. In modern times, secular ideas and ideologies have made new suggestions about the body. In particular, the female body has stood out remarkably in this period.
