Did Elizabethan men recognize women's political power?
Ladies-in-waiting's political engagement was in no sense a part of their office, but was how Elizabeth managed the business of her court.
I'm a history and pop culture geek who sees historical connections to today's news everywhere. I have a special interest in gender and power as expressed in the first Elizabethan era, monarchy, popular culture as a lens for cultural analysis, and the use of fashion and material culture as semiotic keys.
