The author, a specialist of the XVIth century, rescues Renaissance Spanish women from oblivion, particularly the ones belonging to low social levels, forgotten by the history in a male-dominated society.
It approaches in the role of women in their daily life and in their different conditions: married women and nuns, considered perfect; single, marginalized, harlots and witches whom were not.
An essay that is very well documented, with a clear and pleasant style that describes given situations in our country until recently.
