Christine De Pisan Poem by Boston Kelley

Christine De Pisan

Oh, Christine, you stand as a figure
for womankind!
You are an advocate for females
everywhere, voicing who they are.
You stand as a challenger to all men,
fighting the mighty forces
of male chauvinism.
There is so much to be learned from you
that all females can be empowered by.
In our hate-filled and shameful world,
women need you more than ever.
Abuse, neglect, and misogyny has broken
many women who have lost their confidence.
Men tell women what they should be and
treat them as if they were their
Civilized men have their images ruined by
uncivilized men who mistreat women.
You challenged the misogyny of your day
and we need you to do so again today.
Who else could women find female strength in
besides you?
What author has written a better source of
female empowerment other than your
Book of the City of Ladies?
For you bring to light women of the ages
who accomplished praiseworthy deeds,
helped the progression of mankind,
and displayed qualities that females can
have as well as men.
Without it, how can we know of the magnificent
wonders of women?
How can we stop the lies of women being
ignorant, weak, and cowardly?
How can we encourage people to see women
as equals and not as inferior?
We need you, O Christine, as a symbol of
the ideal woman.
We need you to provide female empowerment
in our misogynistic world.
