Women in Early Modern England 1550-1720 by Patricia Crawford

Book Description

This is an original, accessible, and comprehensive survey of life as it was experienced by most Englishwomen during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The authors examine virtually all aspects of women's lives: female life-stages from birth to death; the separate culture of women, including female friendship and feminist consciousness; the diverse roles of women in the religious and political movements of the day; and the effect of prevailing perceptions of gender differences. Comparisons are made between the makeshift economy of poor women and the occupational identities, and preoccupations, of the middling and elite classes. This fascinating and well-illustrated book reconstructs the mental and material world of Tudor and Stuart women. It will become the standard text on the subject.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Drawing together all the latest work and combining it with original research, this book provides a comprehensive account of almost every aspect of women's lives in Tudor and Stuart England. Scholarly and yet readable it is highly recommended as the best introduction to the subject. Its splendidly illustrated pages discuss female experience from childhood and adolescence, to married or single adulthood, and old age. The authors explore female culture, identities and solidarities; women at work and at home, in public and in private. They illustrate how those whom society prescribed to be 'the weaker sex' fashioned productive, meaningful and even independent lives within the confines of a patriarchal system. The result is a learned, accessible and stimulating read. (Kirkus UK)
