Women Philosophers 1000 - 1500 CE

Few of the Women Philosophers 1000 - 1500 CE have been included in Introduction to Philosophy text books. And yet they did some extraordinary work and are well worth reading.

There are additional women to be added to this list. But we need to learn who they are from our visitors. I feel certain that there were women 'lovers of wisdom' on some of the other continents during this time period but I do not know their names.
