Eixemenis is on the defensive in his initial support for the education of women, but later states his case much more strongly. In the Third book of Lo crestià (1384), he goes no further than to recommend that husbands shuould not prevent their wives from learning to read and write, but in the later books he clearly defends the right of women to literacy and to free themselves from “the darkness of ignorance”.
