Summary expansion
The work covers everyone from Eve to Henry VIII of England to Queen Isabella. Acosta has chapters on sex, leisure, women's property rights, their standing in the courts, women literati, scientists, philosophers and military leaders, and on abusive husbands. Throughout he emphasizes the powerfully positive symbols of women in prose, verse, art and emblems. The title engraving suggests that a life of chastity leads to death and dust, symbolized by the cleric standing on skeletons; Cupid hanging by his ankle suggests that unbridled sensuality also leads to an unsatisfying life
