Interesting article. I have long be interested in the role women have played in history as it so poorly recorded. A book worth checking out is Antonia Frazers book The Warrior Queens whcih certainly sheds some light on the concept of the passive female sitting at home doing embrodiery!!!

The medieval laws of chivalry made women immune to attack, unless they took up arms.
