In this bold reinterpretation of Women's changing labor status during the late medieval and early modern period, Martha C. Howell argues that women's work was the product of the intersection of two systems, one cultural and one economic. Howell shows forcefully that patriarchal family structure, not capitalist development per se, was a decisive factor in determining women's work. Women could enjoy high labor status if they worked within a family production unit or if their labor did not interfere with their domestic responsibilities or threaten male control of a craft or trade.

From the Back Cover:

This is a challenging and provocative work that contributes enormously to improving our understanding of women's economic status in the late medieval period and how it changed with the development of capitalism. This book should be quite interesting to those not steeped in the controversies of the scholarship of the period but who have a general interest in women's status and periods of economic transition.

About the Author:

Martha C. Howell is professor of history and director of the Institute for Research on Women and Gender at Columbia University.
