Sor Juana – “Hombres necios que acusáis a la mujer sin razón”

I’ve seen some debate about whether Sor Juana is appropriately considered a foremother of modern feminists, so I’ve attached a feminist art piece of Sor Juana I saw online. Also, here are a few links to one of her most famous poems about gender roles, “Hombres necios que acusáis a la mujer sin razón.” (I can’t find a satisfying English translation.)
