Description

This text, the third volume of "A History of Women in the West" series, draws a picture of women in early modern Europe, considering them in a context of work, marriage and family. It portrays the "woman" as she appears in a variety of representations, from simple woodcuts and popular literature to master paintings, and as the focal point of a debate - sometimes humourous, sometimes acrimonious - conducted in every field: letters, arts, philosophy, the sciences and medicine. Against oppressive experience, confining laws, and repetitous claims about female "nature", women took initiative by quiet manoeuvres and dissidence.
