Hughes 1 Meg Hughes Alcott AP World History 12 February 2018 Chapter 11 Outline Looking back and Looking Around: The long History of pastoral peoples The world of pastoral societies Women had been offered a higher status, fewer restrictions when it came to their role in society, and a greater role in their public life. Women were involved in productive labor as well as having domestic responsibility for their food and children The care of smaller animals such as sheep and goats fell onto the women of the societies even though they could not and did not own livestock of their own. Widows could remarry, the views on that were not negative like they were in chinese societies. Women could be the initiators of a divorce Mongol women frequently served as political advisors Women could ride horses and shoot arrows just as skillfully as men. Women could carry quivers and bows, They could also ride horses just with shorter stirrups. Women made practically everything: clothes made out of the skin of animals, shoes, leggings, everything else made of leather. Women drove and repaired carts, loaded camels, and were quick with these tasks. Wear trousers and pants just like men. Pastoralists represented an alternative to the agricultural way of life that they disdained. They were almost always deeply connected to their agricultural neighbors.
