Argues that there are pervasive parallels between Jane Anger Her Protection for Women (1589), the first known book in English purporting to be written by a woman in defense of women, and Nicholas Breton's Praise of Vertuous Ladies (ca. 1599), and that Breton's book copies from Jane Anger and turns the protagonist's angry defense of all women to gallantry and patronage for virtuous ladies.
