Christine de Pizan


Christine de Pizan (c. 1364-1430)

“On the whole, men seem to hold the view that women have ever done anything for humankind but bear children and spin wool.”

  • From The Book of the City of Ladies (Part I, chapter 37) by Christine de Pizan, translated by Rosalind Brown-Grant (Penguin Classics, 1999).
