The history of medieval women has been transformed in recent years through the expansion of evidence and the application of innovative and provocative methodologies. The author draws on these research results to emphasize the resilience and achievements of medieval women, whilst recognizing the misogynistic constraints embedded in the structures of medieval society.

i really enjoy reading about these woman,in theses times.I really got interested when Elizabeth the movie came out in 1998,i think but i was just taken by how things were.I then saw Marie Antoinette and it said that she made the country broke,i look at her life and it was very plush,then i got involved with The Tudors i love Anne Boleyn i know many didn't but i do believe that her father pushed her into that relationship,i do believe Anne loved him and i don't think she was cheating on him as she was thought to be.Then i saw The White Queen I fell in love all those woman either their husbands controlled them or they were married off to who-ever.i just really love that era i wish i could go to England & see the castles,i would love it.
