Default Re: [Q] Sexual equality

If i'm not mistaken, this mmorpg takes place in the middle of the Sengoku "Warring States" period... so not only were women expected to manage households and finances while the men were off fighting, they were also called upon to fight when needed.

There had also been the traditional right of the woman to inherit property and manage it for herself... which goes as far back as the 12th century.

Either way, in this era of Japanese history, there are definitely important roles for women to play.
