  • When you grow up, you will almost always be in this house. You will cook, clean, teach, and mentor your children for life. 
  • No, I'm sorry. There are no schools for women. We are needed in the house, not in the hospital.
  • I can't go to school?

  • I wish I could go to school.
  • In the 1500's, women weren't allowed to go to school. Women were only allowed education if their family had nobility or they wanted to pay for a private tutor. Otherwise, there were no schools that allowed women to attend. This means that they treated girls from poor families horribly. 
  • In the 1500's, women were taught from birth that they were meant to govern the household and take care of children. Women couldn't even heir to their father's titles. Women probably felt like they couldn't do anything. This is not the way women should feel about themselves and their life. 
  • In the 1500's, women couldn't enter into universities or become doctors or lawyers. They couldn't act in theaters, or be involved in politics. What could women do? They could cook, clean, take care of her husband's house and, their children. Being this restricted, women could have built up the image that she is only fit for one job. Women were under the stereotype that they cry too much. This might have made people see them as weak which led them to believe that they couldn't become anything more than a housewife.
