This paper looks at the ways in which gender relationships in the West have changed over the previous millennium. It is discussed in the context of general changes in the world and how these effected the gender roles in return. It looks at the woman's role in the family, the work place and society at large.
From the Paper:"The relations between men and women have changed substantially over the past 1000 years, as have a vast number of other aspects of human society. During this period we have seen the shift from being a primarily agricultural species (with many people still depending on food collection, pastoralism and horticulture) to an industrial species. The human population has expanded dramatically, bringing with it substantial and often catastrophic environmental and now climatic change. We have increased our ability to wage war to genocidal levels. And we have also produced the printing press, vastly expanded educational opportunities for many people, the end to governmentally sanctioned slavery, space travel."
