Recreational Medievalism covers a range of hobbies and groups including the Society for Creative Anachronism, Renaissance Faires, and other such things.

Issues

  • Women's activities within recreational medievalism may be constrained, overtly or covertly, by real or imagined historical gender norms.
  • Women who participate in various forms of combat (fencing, SCA armored combat, etc) may have difficulty learning how to do it, and teachers may not be used to teaching women.
  • Women may have physical difficulties due to different body shape, and may have psychological barriers to doing combat which need to be overcome in order to succeed.
