Guest: Paula Findlen, Ph.D., Professor of Italian History and Chair of the Department of History at Stanford University The women of Bologna are so legendary, there’s even a page dedicated to them on the Italian city’s tourism website. They’re known as Medieval Feminists – highly-educated and influential at a time when women were generally considered less-than-men. Their stories are a point of great pride in Italy. They’re also largely fiction according to the research of Paula Findlen.
