Women and the Reformation

Draft 1

I will argue how women and the reformation dealt with their roles as women and how it compares to the women in the 20th century. Did women in the church have a voice? Were women respected by the men and how did society treated them as women in the cities where they lived. I will also look at the women of the reformation who were educated and made their voices heard. Many may argue that the women in the reformation were less then, however, as women of the church, wives and mothers they soon had the opportunity and freedom to make changes.
