Was the Reformation good for women?

When: March 11 2021

Where: Virtual, United Kingdom


It is a topic that historians have long struggled with – did the Reformation bring with it much-needed change for Christian women, liberating them through accessible texts and promoting equality, or did it reaffirm stereotypes and actively disavow women of choices?

This talk will explore the issues facing and experienced by women in the sixteenth century, through a range of different case studies and exploring fascinating sources and testimonies.
