Agora Foundation Great Books Seminar On the Feminine

As we continue our 20th season, we are pleased to invite you to our next one-day great books seminar on this challenging and timeless topic.
   
“Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more.
Men were deceivers ever,
One foot in sea, and one on shore,
To one thing constant never.
Then sigh not so, but let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into hey nonny, nonny.”
– Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing
“One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman.”
– Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex
