Christine de Pizan


Christine de Pizan (c. 1364-1430)

“Human superiority or inferiority is not determined by sexual difference but by the degree to which one has perfected one’s own nature and morals.”

  • The Book of the City of Ladies (Part I, chapter 9) by Christine de Pizan, translated by Rosalind Brown-Grant (Penguin Classics, 1999).
