How can mere women resist the misogyny of men?When a resentful peasant rages against a woman’s efforts to build up her flock of sheep. …or a husband, grown melancholy and ill-tempered, succumbs to idle talk that his wife’s a scold. …or a priest, fearful of women’s “unnatural” power, determines to keep them in their place.
The devastation wrought two years ago by the Black Death changed the balance of society, and gave women a chance to break free from the yoke of chatteldom, to learn a trade, build a business, be more than just men’s wives.
But many men still hold fast to the teachings of the Church, and fear the havoc the daughters of Eve might wreak if they’re allowed to usurp men’s roles, and gain control over their own lives.
Not all men resist women’s quest for change – indeed, they want change for themselves.
Yet it takes only one or two misogynists to unleash the hounds of hostility and hatred…
A Woman’s Lot is the second Meonbridge Chronicle, the sequel to Fortune’s Wheel.
