Declamation on the nobility and preeminence of the female sex by Henricus Cornelius Agrippa( )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 1,933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1529, the Declamation of the Nobility and Preeminence of the Female Sex argues that women are more than equal to men in all things that really matter, including the public spheres from which they had long been excluded. Rather than directly refuting prevailing wisdom, Agrippa uses women's superiority as a rhetorical device and overturns the misogynistic interpretations of the female body in Greek medicine, in the Bible, in Roman and canon law, in theology and moral philosophy, and in politics. He raises the question of why women were excluded and provides answers based not on sex but on social conditioning, education, and the prejudices of their more powerful oppressors. His declamation, disseminated through the printing press, illustrates the power of that new medium, soon to be used to generate a larger reformation of religion

Her immaculate hand : selected works by and about the women humanists of Quattrocento Italy by Margaret L King( Book )

16 editions published between 1983 and 2000 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty-four letters, orations, and encomia by and to Renaissance women, translated from Latin. Quattrocento Italy produced a number of such learned women; though they were granted neither great status in the world of humanism nor recognition of intellectual parity with men, they surpassed their medieval forebears and most of their contemporaries in other parts of Europe, and they transmitted to following centuries the important notion that women could participate as creative intellectuals in the shaping of culture.
