Christine de Pizan


Christine de Pizan (c. 1364-1430)

“Despite what the slanderers say, there’s a positively infinite number of countesses, baronesses, ladies, maidens, bourgeoises and women of every estate who are honourable and distinguished.”

  • From The Book of the City of Ladies (Part II, chapter 68) by Christine de Pizan, translated by Rosalind Brown-Grant (Penguin Classics, 1999).
