Celebrating International Women’s Month

March 6, 2019

March 8th is International Women's Day. We are celebrating each and every one of the female authors that have contributed to the Canterbury Classics collection for Women's History Month. The authors below all had to defy social norms and push boundaries in order to accomplish what they did, and although some didn't live to see it, get the respect that they deserved.

These women are smart, independent, and inspiring, and their works are still here (over 100 years later) to prove it. See all of the fearless females and their works below!
