Christine de Pizan


Christine de Pizan (c. 1364-1430)

“Though some women are undeniably silly, there are many others who have more intelligence, sensitivity and shrewdness than a whole group of men put together.”

  • From The Book of the City of Ladies (Part I, chapter 13) by Christine de Pizan, translated by Rosalind Brown-Grant (Penguin Classics, 1999).
