Katarzyna Napierała

Abstract

The purpose of this dissertation focuses on the political images of two women who marked their era. At the same time as the title suggests, we would draft a reflection on the image of women in both countries where the misogynistic culture was very strong. The study is divided into three parts: the first focuses on the conditions of a woman and the birth of public opinion to the Enlightenment era. We also bring to a reader the historical context of the time and the relations between France, Poland and the country of Maria Teresa and Catherine the Great in the first part of the eighteenth century. In the next part we present the methods, which the two women have used to win public opinion, how they communicated with society. Finally in the third part we have analysed the receptions of this political communication in France and Poland, on the several examples in important moments on history od the four countries. In the annexe, as the integral part of this study, we have put several reproductions of engravings and portraits of Maria Theresa and Catherine the Great; witch is an accomplishment for the content of the second and third part.
