The article devoted to the 150th anniversary of the birth of prominent Ukrainian writer and public figure Lesia Ukrainka describes her vision and perception of woman’s position in European literature and society. The uniqueness of Lesia’s research is presented through the deep analysis of her personal life and professional activity as a writer, a poet and a scientist. In this article Lesia Ukrainka is depicted as the intellectual and scholarly woman who was one of the first in Ukraine and Europe who made the very detailed analysis of such new and undiscovered issue as woman’s emancipation. The attention is on the fact that Lesia Ukrainka gave objective vision of the matter without supporting radical feminists in their desire to make a woman a super creature, more perfect than a man.
