Dans ce traité méconnu tiré de ses Œuvres morales, Plutarque se livre à un brilliant éloge des femmes à une époque où elles étaient cantonnées au rôle d’épouses et de mères, et réduites au silence. Rédigé au début du IIe siècle après J.-C., Vertus de femmes complète en quelque sorte les célèbres Vies parallèles, puisqu’il rapporte les actes mémorables de vingt-sept femmes qui se sont illustrées, individuellement ou collectivement, par leur braveness ou par d’autres vertus traditionnellement considérées comme « viriles ». Ces héroïnes oubliées du monde vintage ne sont pourtant pas des garçons manqués, mais des femmes jusqu’au bout des ongles. Plutarque n’est pas un féministe avant l’heure, il veut d’abord et avant tout montrer que los angeles femme peut elle aussi porter des valeurs qui ne sont pas fondamentalement masculines mais universelles.
