Excerpt:

 

The article looks at books written by 18th and 19th century travellers to Portugal, to see what can be learnt about the position of women in the society. The author believes that by reading such accounts we can learn of the limited, if not unhappy, existence that women led, their looks and fashions, behaviours and occupations.
