Damsels Not In Distress
Hopkins, Andrea. Damsels Not in Distress: The True Story of Women in Medieval Times. (The Library of the Middle Ages.) New York: Rosen Publishing Group, 2004.
This book offers a nice introduction to European women and the role they played during the Middle Ages. It shows that women had more rights than they had at later periods and often served alongside their husbands. The book addresses women of all classes, women in the home, women rulers and leaders, women who became nuns, and women in business. It is a great introduction to younger readers for this period and offers a bibliography of additional resources for further study. 3.5 stars.
