In the wake of the Black Death, there were hopes that women would have more
rights, a parallel with the decline of serfdom (declining labour source because of the
plague, thus rights of the serfs improve)
Patriarchy: economic, ideological domination of man over woman
Descriptive vs. prescriptive literature: books written on HOW women/men should
behave (prescriptive), not necessarily how things WERE (descriptive)
Men tended to not live as long and widowhood/remarriage was a common occurrence
The number of women who never marry is increasing
Many historians think that widowhood was the best stage of a womans life (no man
in charge of her, her own household, etc.)

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
