Summary Most of the women who ever lived left no trace of their existence on the record of history. In this work, Suzannah Lipscomb recovers the lives and aspirations of ordinary sixteenth- and seventeenth-century French women, using rich source material to show what they thought about their lives, menfolk, friendships, faith, and sex.-- Provided by publisher
