19. 1450-1600 Women and the Reformation
The Reformation was a time of great change in Europe for both men and women. While men are at the forefront of change most of the time, many women also held positions of power and were extremely influential in the shifts taking place during this time period. While some women were well respected, it was difficult to earn and maintain that trust and women were often persecuted for speaking out. Needless to say, it was not an easy time to be a woman.
