Book Description:

The extraordinary number of letters written by Renaissance women (over 10,000 exist from England alone) reveals the often subtle ways women of the period influenced their world. But a surprising number of women required no subtlety at all for their presence to be felt, taking their place beside men at court and making invaluable contributions to science, medicine, philosophy, art, music, and more.
