Women's Jobs in the 17th Century

In the 17th century some women had jobs. Some of them worked spinning cloth. Women were milliners, dyers and embroiderers. There were also washerwomen. Some women worked in food preparation such as brewers, bakers or confectioners. Women also sold foodstuffs in the streets. A very common job for women was domestic servant. Other women were midwives and apothecaries.

However most women were housewives and they were kept very busy. Most men could not run a farm or a business without their wife's help.

In the 17th century most households in the countryside were largely self-sufficient. A housewife (assisted by her servants if she had any) often had to bake her family's bread and brew their beer (it was usually not safe to drink water). She was also responsible for curing bacon, salting meat, and making pickles, jellies, and preserves (all of which were essential in an age before fridges and freezers). Very often in the countryside the housewife also made the family candles and their soap. A housewife also spun wool and linen.

A farmer's wife also milked cows, fed animals and grew herbs and vegetables. She often kept bees. She also took goods to market to sell. On top of that, she had to cook, wash the family's clothes, and clean the house.

The 17th century housewife was also supposed to have some knowledge of medicine and be able to treat her family's illnesses. If she could not they would go to a wise woman. Only the wealthy could afford a doctor.

In the 17th century poor and middle class wives were kept very busy but rich women were not idle either. In a big house, they had to organize and supervise the servants. Also if her husband was away from home the woman usually ran the estate.
