What was it like to be a woman when England was ruled by a queen, but women had almost no legal power? When marriage cost women their property rights? When the ideal woman was rarely seen and never heard in public? In other words, what was it like to be a woman in England between 1525 and 1675? Suzanne Hull, in Women According to Men answers these questions and more, taking fascinating look at how women were described, and prescribed to act, by men during that time. Hull, the first woman ever appointed as a Principal Officer at the Huntington Library as well as the author of Chaste, Silent and Obedient, uses her years of experience researching 16th- and 17th-century texts to provide you with an authentic look at the state of women during the Elizabethan era. Through an examination of texts written during that time about and for women, Hull elucidates what the rules for women were then, as well as discussing health habits, household remedies, theories on conception, the care of children, the making of food, fashion and more.

About the Author:

Suzanne W. Hall is the author of Chaste, Silent & Obedient and was the principal officer of the Huntington Library, Art Gallery, and Botanical Gardens.

Review:

Suzanne Hull notes in her preface that the goal of this book is to provide an introduction to the world of English women during the period between 1525 and 1675 as represented in publications of this same time period that were authored by men. Hull has been very successful in achieving her goal. While this book is very suitable for use in undergraduate level instruction, it is valuable to scholars in early modern European Women's Studies and Tudor-Stuart English history as well. (Joseph S. Freedman Sixteenth Century Journal)
