The translation of the glorious name of “Joan of Arc” into a tool of vilification is analysed in this paper. The majority of examples, col-lected from two popular Russian newspapers, contain negative under-currents. For instance, the unflattering portrait of the former Prime Minister of Ukraine, Yulia Tymoshenko, was established by the press through the persistent use of the name "Joan of Arc of Ukraine." The research reveals that many members of the discourse community still evaluate female activists through the lens of gender prejudice.
