Summary/Abstract: The paper deals with the issue of woman’s identity through two images: anthropological and media. The key issue is what the basic intellectual theses for creating and identifying a woman’s identity are and who were the main authorities in constructing the woman’s identity? The authors try to answer the questions on which concepts the woman’s identity is based and to which extent that image was taken by media. The special emphasis is put on dualisms and abstract, non-historical, archaic definitions of the woman’s identity. The paper also analyzes qualitative and quantitative role of media in reproducing authentic image of a woman and her identity.
