Abstract

Two characters in Laurence Sterne's "Tristam Shandy"--the midwife and parson's wife, present readers with the opportunity to observe the activities open to women in the Church of England in the 18th century, a period in which the church is generally perceived to be a bastion of male privilege and control.
