Abstract

Bohemia was characterized by a cultural framework which assigned authority to men. But even as dependent daughters, sisters, and wives, medieval women were actively working to better their lot both discreetly and openly. This study focuses on these dissident women and the men that recognized their dignity. [Abstract from Amazon]
