Women in the Tudor age are often overshadowed by their male counterparts, and as daughters, mothers and wives they were expected to be obedient to the man of the household. Many opportunities and professions were closed to them, their early years spent imitating their mothers before learning to run a household in preparation for marriage. Once married their responsibilities would vary greatly according to their social status and rank. Widowhood left some in vulnerable conditions while for others it enabled them to make a life for themselves and become independent in a largely patriarchal society.

Amy McElroy examines the roles of women from across all backgrounds, explains how expectations of them differed during the various stages of life and demonstrates how they played a vital role in Tudor society.
