Author(s): L’Hermite-Leclercq, Paulette.
Title : The Feudal Order [The eleventh and twelfth centuries were a time of unity and stability in Europe, but it is hard to determine whether living conditions for women improved during this era. Women from this period rarely speak in their own voices, and their history is mostly mediated by men. Although some claim that women outnumbered men during this time so that women were more highly valued, the author refutes this claim. Noble birth and upbringing may have brought certain advantages to some girls, but gender and class hierarchies limited their options in life. Geographical location, social rank, and economic class profoundly influenced the lives and occupations of women in all three feudal estates: aristocratic women, religious women, and peasant women (rural and urban).
