Women in samurai society
Over time samurai women lost their respect. An example of this is that in the 12th century the woman samurai could go into battle if their husband had died and protected the home, they were also suppose to fallow bushido. In the 17th century women were seen inferior to their husbands and women did not choose their husbands, usually their families arranged the marriage.
