Christine
Christine De Pizan An unlikely candidate to dispute the unfair, misogynistic treatment of women by men and society, Christine de Pizan successfully challenged the accepted negative views that were being expressed about women by the all-male literary world of her era.

The lack of a positive female role model to pattern herself after made Christine a true visionary in the fight for the equal rights o...

Orientalism
Orientalism Said describes Orientalism as, ...the generic term that I have been employing to describe the Western approach to the Orient; Orientalism is the discipline by which the Orient was (and is) approached systematically, as a topic of learning, discovery and practice.

At first, the need for such programs was small, but over time it has been steadily increasing until now where th...
