Omtale The Power of Women
Susan Smith's comprehensive study of the Power of Women topos in written texts and in art emphasizes the critical phase of its development from the late twelfth to the end of the fourteenth century. During this period, she argues, traditional employment of the topos exclusively to condemn women and justify male authority underwent a dramatic shift.
