Euripides, considered by thinkers of feminism later, an outstanding advocate that ensure women rights in ancient western. “Venus in Fur” skillfully quotes this play to boldly ask the male-centered world. “The Bacchantes” and “Venus in Fur” all use bacchante element to display their critical thinking about the present related phenomena and female consciousness. So I will refer to Greek Myths and dramas, mythology, feminist studies as well as some knowledge in history, literature and art, psychology to elaborate women's rights in Myth and reality, explore women's empowerment in different cultural backgrounds.
