Shephard examines attitudes toward women in early modern England in the writings of John Knox and his opponents. Her analysis of the ideas of leading Catholic noblemen challenges the view that Protestantism improved the status of women, and shows that the most radical ideas about women's right to participate in public life are to be found within the aristocracy.
