The roles of Women in New France
Les Filles du Roi
Roles of country women
Roles of city women
Roles of religious women
Nuns played an significant role in New France. They were like doctors who took care of the sick and like teachers who taught the children. Poorer girls had a chance to have an education and gain knowledge. They even produced goods and sold in the community. But did the religious women get respect from everyone equally? Did they take care of everyone? I think they were respected because they were the ones who treated the sick and were one of the ways to gain education.
Women in New France were actually the most important ones as they were the ones who were the reason for it to survive. They did everything like farming, keeping the household and even running a business. They left France just to develop the territories for
New France. But what did they get in return? Did they have any personal time or free time?
Did they get any rights? Why were they treated this way? Why was it unusual for women to own property or keep books? They should've got back what they deserved.
