Then the speaker of this webinar (Dr. Maryam Ghasemi) after introducing Molière's works stated that she has criticized and analyzed the issues of women and society with a sociological and anthropological approach.

Dr. Ghasemi stated that Moliere portrayed women as free. The faculty member of the University of Tehran also added: "One of the characteristics of Molière's works is the creation of characters from women who lived in seventeenth-century French society."
