men was a simplification of social hierarchy and ritual, a de- differentiation between the laity and the clergy and between the religious and the worldly life. 49 We might go on to ask with Alice Clark and Michelle Rosaldo whether a de-differentiation between the worlds of childrearing, production, and political power, a simplification of the places where our life goes on, might not at this moment in history be a useful step toward more autonomy for both sexes.

In the field of women's history, at any rate, it is evident that the walled City of Ladies must give way to the open forum, perhaps the battlefield, for the serious study of the sexes. From Women Worthies to a worthier craft.
