Abstract

This article lifts the veil on the women who dressed as men during the English Civil War -and on contemporary reactions towards them. The article explores the handful of cases in which the presence of cross-dressed women in the rival armies is genuinely attested to - and asks what these cases reveal about reactions to such women during the conflict itself.
