Moderata Fonte: The Worth of Women


 

Seven women debate gender equality, the true worth of women and the responsibility of husbands, fathers, sons and lovers.
From a 1600 book written by a Venetian noblewoman.

by Moderata Fonte | translated by Virginia Cox | directed by Laura Caparrotti

Moderata Fonte was the pseudonym of Modesta Pozzo. Through this witty and ambitious work, Fonte seeks to elevate women's status to that of men, arguing that women have the same innate abilities as men and, when similarly educated, prove their equals. A fine example of Renaissance vernacular literature, this book is also a testament to the enduring issues that women face, including the attempt to reconcile femininity with ambition.
