Women drinking (Watriquet de Couvin 1325) Don't ever think that women drinking wine together is a clear sign of modernity and emancipation, the Middle Ages are different from the preconception we have of that time. Some books dealing with spiritual guidance for women even have a few lines about wine excesses, for example the author of Le Ménagier de Paris, a treaty about morality and home management written in 1392/1394 advised his young wife not to drink wine... before 9am.
