In this treatment for general audiences Bardsley (history, Moravian College) is careful to stay away from the idea that all women from 30 to 1500 AD were victims, while also showing how they were rarely treated as equals. She describe the opportunities for women in religion and the suffering of women who dismissed it, the legal status of women, which rarely allowed for a woman to be alone in status or business, the ways in which women could control their own destinies somewhat at home but also had to work within a patristic society, the means by which women could earn their keep, although limited as to choices of careers or work outside the home, the culture of and around women, and the fates of women born to assume power and authority.
