By the Middle Ages, women's roles as defined by the Church were strictly circumscribed; however, alternate role models were also available, beginning with the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene, and the transvestite saints from the early Church. This program examines the options available to women living in the 12th through 15th centuries and how some subverted traditional roles in order to discover and express their own freedom, dignity, and power. Professors Kathy Garay and Madeleine Jeay, of McMaster University, offer insights into the medieval world and how medieval women's struggles for recognition reflect contemporary issues.
