What did it mean to be a woman in early modern legal systems?

Drawing on a wide range of historical and literary examples – from Anne Askew to Mary Stuart, A Warning for Fair Women to The Winter's Tale – these sessions seek to bring together the latest research on the female in early modern legal contexts. By considering the idea of the woman as witness, litigant, and defendant; by imagining the role of the early modern courtroom in the shaping of female identity; and by examining contemporary literary portrayals of the plight of 'women before the law', these sessions will attend to the myriad ways in which women were placed 'on trial' in the early modern period.
