Wives and Daughters(1984)
The Women of Sixteenth Century England
A non fiction book by Kathy Lynn Emerson
Sixteeth-century England was scarcely a paradise for anyone by modern standards, and women in particular had few rights. At birth their fate was in hands of their fathers and after marriage everything they had belonged to their husbands. Yet in large numbers sixteenth-century women managed to work around these disadvantages and achieve personal success, even personal wealth.
