The City of Ladies
  • The City of Ladies

  • Pioneering female writer Christine de Pizan's spirited defence of her sex against medieval misogyny and literary stereotypes is now recognized as one of the most important books in the history of feminism, and offers a telling insight into the role of women in a man's world.

Christine de Pizan was one of the most remarkable and respected literary figures in the courts of medieval Europe - the more so for being the only female professional writer of her time.
