Quotable Monday: Women in History

 

 

There is no more effective camouflage in history than to have been born a woman.

The Maid and the Queen: The Secret History of Joan of Arc, Nancy Goldstone.

Full context of the quote:

“Six hundred years is a long time to wait for answers to so prominent a mystery.  For those who wonder after reading these pages how it is possible that the evidence of Yolande’s involvement in the story of Joan of Arc has never before been adequately explored, I can only respond that there is no more effective camouflage in history than to have been born a woman.”
Ain’t that the truth!
