Women and Economic Activities in Late Medieval Ghent argues that women managed their own wealth to a far greater extent than previously recognized.  Women bought, sold, sued, lent money, and contracted debts with little legal or financial oversight of men.  Contrary to the widespread view that women exercised economic autonomy only in widowhood, Hutton argues that marital status was not the chief determinant of women’s economic activities in the mid-fourteenth century.
