Isabella d’Este is not the only Renaissance-style woman from the past you’ve probably never heard of. From the beginning of history, there have existed these exceptional women. And one of the things our book, RenWomen, will do is bring some of these women to your attention.
Why have most of these women not gone down in history, as so many exceptional men of their times did? Well, there is the old saw, that you need only look at who has written history. (In similar fashion, so many remarkable people of color have been passed over in the history books.)
But as we look at examples of amazing modern day Renaissance women in our book RenWomen: What Modern Renaissance Women Have to Teach Us About Living Rich, Full Lives, it is important to also remember on whose shoulders they stand.
