This chapter addresses the question: what opportunities did ordinary women enjoy for recreation in early modern England, and what forms might it take? It considers the role of religion in women's lives. It cites the importance of mutual support in women's lives, which remains the clearest evidence for a distinctively female subculture.

Keywords:   recreation, women, early modern England, religion, female subculture, mutual support
