Published in 1600, 'The Worth of Women' explores nearly every aspect of the female experience in both theoretical and practical terms as these noblewomen discuss men’s curious hostility toward the opposite sex and possible cures for it.

Through this dialogue, Fonte provides a picture of the private and public lives of Renaissance women, ruminating on their roles in the home, in society, and in the arts.
