Summary:
"The Renaissance created a new vision of womanhood and indeed a 'New Woman', proposes Gaia Servadio in this highly readable and erudite book. In an original and unique take on the Renaissance world, Servadio dates this revolutionary movement not to the traditionally quoted year of 1492 but to the invention of the printing press in 1456, which made books - and hence education - available to women."--Jacket.
