“The Book of the City of Ladies” by Christine de Pizan is an amazing work that starts off with the author being visited by three women who represent Reason, Justice, and Rectitude. From here, Pizan is told to build a city filled with accomplished women.
Pizan originally has very stereotypical thoughts about women, however, these thoughts are proved wrong once one of the women (Reason, Justice, or Rectitude), tell her about women that have proved the opposite of Pizan’s thoughts. From here, Christine ends up creating her City of Ladies and populates it with very powerful women in history. All of her original, stereotypical views are gone by the end of the book.
