City of Ladies

I loved Christine de Pizan work The Book of the City of Ladies. Christine is visited by three women representing Reason, Rectitude, and Justice and tell her to build “The City of Ladies” with the most accomplished and noblest women in the world.

I really enjoyed reading this because I fell in love with the concept. (Clearly, I named my final project after it) How amazing would it be to actually just have a city full of bada** ladies?! If we want to talk hardcore feminism then its probably easiest to build up some walls and only keep the best and brightest women on the inside. (I’m kidding) But overall, I loved the overall concept of this piece.
