Women in the 1500's were treated better than they were in the Renaissance period. They were praised for being a homemaker. They were praised for being the one who raised the children. They were also allowed to read The Bible. So, they would teach their children the Bible also. The family was a big thing in the 1500's.

Many women were not just homemakers and had jobs, in cities, on farms and in palaces. It also depends on what country you look at. Things were very different in France or in Russia. There was a trend in Western Europe for more female education, influenced by Humanism. Some women, like Elizabeth I or Catherine Parr made great use of these opportunities, but the majority of men and women did not have the chance to enjoy such an education.

Well, Women were considered subordinate to men and did not have as many rights as men. They were always expected to do things such as taking care of the family, satisfying their husband' every need, and not working outside of their houses. During the industrialization era, when jobs became more common and factories needed workers, women started working as well.

Yes Feminism was a part of the renaissance ideal. Renaissance means literally "rebirth" and feminism was not a rebirth but a birth of women's idealism.

During and after the rebirth they played bigger roles in society as artist and writer. Both of which were originally only men's occupations.
