Christine de Pizan

 

Christine de Pizan (c. 1364-1430)

“Those who criticize the female sex because they are inherently sinful are men who have wasted their youth on dissolute behavior and who have had affairs with many different women.”

  • The Book of the City of Ladies (Part I, chapter 8) by Christine de Pizan, translated by Rosalind Brown-Grant (Penguin Classics, 1999).
