Olimpia Fulvia Morata was an Italian noblewoman who was actively involved in the Reformation. Unlike most women of her time, she was highly educated. She was also a poet. Here is a snippet of her poetry, where she describes herself, and likely, many women today:
Never did the same thing please the heart of all,
And never did Zeus grant the same mind to all . . .
And I, though born female, have left feminine things,
yarn, shuttle, loom-threads, and work-baskets,
I admire the flowery meadow of the Muses,
and the pleasant choruses of twin-peaked Parnassus.
Other women perhaps delight in other things.
These are my glory, these my delight.
Fortunately, we can be partakers of the both the "yarn, shuttle, loom-threads," and the "Muses." I know I like both, and I believe it enriches my life to pursue both even if at times I study more than I get out the yarn and shuttle.
Preferring one over the other doesn't make me more or less womanly.
