The bad woman is thin, tottering, weak – an inconstant companion, unfriendly. She annoys others, chagrins them, shames, oppresses. She becomes impatient; she loses hope, becomes embarrassed – chagrined. Evil is her life; she lives in shame. The Weaver of Designs She concerns herself with using thread, works with thread. The good weaver of designs is skilled – a maker of varicolored capes, an outliner of designs, a blender of colors, a joiner of pieces, a matcher of pieces, a person of good memory. She does things dexterously. She weaves designs. She selects. She weaves tightly. She forms borders. She forms the neck…. The bad weaver of designs is untrained – silly, foolish, unobservant, unskilled of hand, igno- rant, stupid. She tangles the thread, she harms her work – she spoils it. 38 ECONOMIC ROLE OF WOMEN Lesson 2 Linda Black Copyright © 2003 by College Entrance Examination Board. All rights reserved.

The Physician The physician is a knower of herbs, of roots, of trees, of stones; she is experienced in these. She is one who conducts examinations; she is a woman of experience, of trust, of professional skill: a counselor. The good physician is a restorer, a provider of health, a relaxer – one who makes people feel well…. She cures people; she provides them health; she lances them; she bleeds them… pierces them with an obsidian lancet. 39 ECONOMIC ROLE OF WOMEN Lesson 2 Linda Black Copyright © 2003 by College Entrance Examination Board.

Handout 2N Gender and Labor Roles in Medieval England and France Region: Europe Time Period: ca mid-1200s C.E. Source: Bentley, Jerry H. and Herbert F. Ziegler. Traditions and Encounters (Boston: McGraw-Hill, 2000), 392, 463–464. Male serfs typically worked three days a week in the fields of their lords and provided addition- al labor services during planting and harvesting seasons, while women churned butter, made cheese, brewed beer, spun thread, wove cloth, or sewed clothes for the lords and their families. Some women also kept sheep and cattle, and their obligations to lords included products from their herds. Women who lived in the countryside continued to perform the same kinds of tasks that their ancestors tended to in the early Middle Ages: household chores, weaving, and the care of domestic animals. But medieval towns and cities offered fresh opportunities for women as well as for men. In the patriarchal society of medieval Europe, few routes to public authority were open to women, but in the larger towns and cities, women worked alongside men as butchers, brewers, bakers, candle makers, fishmongers, shoemakers, gem smiths, innkeepers, launderers, money chargers, merchants, and occasionally as physicians and pharmacists.
