Venetian laws protected prostitutes from abusive pimps but also tried to protect their patrons from diseases. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Life Patterns of Women from Medieval York [The author examined skeletal remains from a poor parish in medieval York to learn more about the demography, health, and life expectancies of women.

Because women's skeletons showed fewer signs of stressors, the author theorizes that women were less able than men to fight off serious diseases or injuries. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
