Homework: Women in the Ottoman Empire!

For homework tonight, please read the primary source you received in class today: Women in the Ottoman Empire.  Read it carefully, and consider the material we discussed in class today.  Then, respond to the question at the top of the source on a separate sheet of paper:

What was the role of women in Ottoman society?

Your response should be thoughtful, and demonstrate a thorough understanding of the source.  Remember, however, to consider who is writing the source in question– you might want to do a little research to find out more about the author and their point of view.

If you would like to review some of the material from the documentary we watched today in class, you can find it below:
