3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By "dionemco" on July 13, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This book is divided into parts 1 to 5. If this is the first time you have picked up a work describing this era from the women's aspect then read, 1. Women in History, 2. Marriage, Sex and the Family, 3. Women's Material Worlds. If not, then pass on to Part. 4 describing women's mental worlds which will then be fresh to you. A sample quote, "it was put about that women who had preached, or heard a woman preaching, gave birth to monsters." Something of a self-fulfilling prophesy there, depending on your point of view. The descriptions of Quakers and other Non-Conformist activity are crisp, accurate and interesting and range as far as a discussion of witch-craft, which usually slides off the scale of beliefs. Part 5 is a speedy skate around all those areas which require far deeper study to applaud, or otherwise, the conclusions Laurence has drawn here. It spans the legal aspects of femme coverte, property ownership, marriage settlements and wills in a workwomanlike way. The final chapters, Womens and Men's Worlds and Women and Crime hold no surprises, but the latter is cogent although based on somewhat limited sources. An ideal introductory book for "Women's Studies" suitable for first year university students.
