Ghosts of the Past: the Dark Side of Medieval politics
Life for women has always been somewhat of a treacherous experience filled with dangers. With few or no legal rights or protections, women rarely decided for themselves who to have sex with, let alone marry. Instead the men in their families, their governments, and their religions held almost complete control over their bodies. Among women of high social status this meant that women’s bodies were tools for gaining wealth, power, and social status by those in position to use them.
It is a dark, dystopic realm where only the bravest dare tread.
Are you brave enough to travel there?
