Abstract

This collection lets us penetrate in the office of eleven women who translated novels, scientific work, historical studies and philosophical texts. Thanks to translation, these independent and determined women were able to confirm their selves on the social plan and to express their ideas in an era in which that was prohibited for women. Doing so, these women contributed to the changing point of view concerning the intellectual capacities of women. This book gives an overview of eleven women translators, all exceptional women who deserve to be better known. [Based on publisher information]
