El artículo habla del papel de las mujeres en el "Libro de los engannos e los assayamientos de las mugeres," o "Sendebar," que toma una posición agresiva contra la figura femenina para desacreditarla. La mujer, en esa época, era un objeto y subordinada a los hombres, una posición reforzada por la Iglesia católica. Un ejemplo en "Sendebar" de este subordinación muestra una mujer, esposa del rey, rezando por tener un hijo. Cuando esto sucede, la madre desaparece completamente de la historia. En otra parte del libro se muestra las cualidades de una buena esposa: la bondad, castidad, inteligencia y fidelidad (o obediencia) al marido.
