Christine de Pizan in 1405 first wrote on the importance of the education of women and the ideals of equality in her work “Book of the City of Ladies”. Since that time the same issues have been discussed by Henrik Ibsen in the relationship between Nora and Torvald in “A Doll’s House” (1879), Mary Wollstonecraft in ““A Vindication of the Rights of Women” (1792), John Stuart Mill in “The Subjection of Women” (1869) and Kate Chopin in “The Awakening” (1899).
