This book gives useful information about the life of women in Tudor England, but badly needs editorial work.
The content is helpfully spread across chapters covering stages or events in life - marriage, childbirth and so on, but within the chapters the presentation of information is a little haphazard, and at times repetitive.
The writing itself is in need of improvement - what was the editor doing?? One example - multiple statements are qualified by "of course", "obviously" and "clearly". It just seems amateurish.… (mais)

Readable, entertaining, well-illustrated overview of the roles open to women in Tudor England. Contains a few obvious factual errors and I wouldn't recommend it as a sole or introductory book on the subject.

More enlightening History and more clever ladies taking the initiative and walking the talk despite the fact the whole way Society was strutured was against them.
the ones's to be sorry for are those at the lowest rungs of Society who suffered the most poverty, landless mobile peasants (for work) and single independent or widowed women.
A worthwhile book.
