Abstract

This monograph investigates the lives of women from all social strata in Western Europe during the period from 1500 to 1800. Topics such as how women in western Europe coped with the consequences of being considered inherently sinful, being legally and economically subordinate to their fathers, husbands, brothers, and sons, and the difficulties faced by spinsters, single mothers, and widows were explored.
