Christine de Pizan


Christine de Pizan (c. 1364-1430)

“There are in fact several women who have displayed the necessary courage, strength and bravery to undertake and accomplish extraordinary deeds which match those achieved by the great conquerors and knights mentioned in books.”

  • From The Book of the City of Ladies (Part I, chapter 14) by Christine de Pizan, translated by Rosalind Brown-Grant (Penguin Classics, 1999).
