Male gatekeepers of the past deliberately wrote women out of history. The label FEMINA scribbled on texts known to be written by a woman marked them as less worthy of preservation. Based on five years of original research, historian and broadcaster Dr Janina Ramirez casts new light on over-written females like Hildegard of Bingen, and lost individuals like the Loftus Princess and the Birka Warrior Woman, to uncover the incredible impact they had on society.
By digging beneath the surface, she reveals that the Dark Ages were actually anything but – and rehabilitates the reputations of women struck from history while forging a path towards a fairer future for us all.
