Kairos Italy Theater gives the US premiere of The Worth of Women by Venetian writer and poet Moderata Fonte, a 16th-century advocate of gender equality. Radical and witty, this work depicts conversations among seven diverse Venetian noblewomen, exploring women’s roles in public and private, femininity and ambition, men’s hostility, and possible remedies.
