The Book of the City of Ladies
Christine de Pizan argues that women have less achievements then men because they are not afforded the same opportunities and also that when it comes to achievements and if women were afforded these same opportunities the results would be different because women differ from men.
The book of the City of Ladies was written in 1405. Perhaps it should be food for thought for mysogonists and feminists of today.
A gender is not inherently inferior nor superior nor the same to another gender nor are all those of the same gender carbon copies of each other.
I can subscribe to that.
