Today the world defines itself more by differences rather than sameness. This individualistic approach gives worth to specific characteristics of various societies and to the sharing of cultural sources through translations and intercultural activities. As women writers and intellectuals possess a ‘minority language’ and gender identity, they can be a suitable channel for expressing this changing viewpoint. Thus, they have a special role to play in the recent historical and political situation.
