Topics might include (but are not limited to) women whose geographical location is in some way marginal; women in liminal positions and situations; women whose marital status was uncertain or ambiguous; women with mental health issues; women waiting to see if they would or might inherit land or titles; divorced women; women whose status shifted throughout their lives; or women who were neither maid, widow, nor wife.
