Virginity of elizabethan women

The character Miranda, who is the only female in this drama, is given a value by Ferdinand, her would-be lover, and Prospero, her father. That value of her virginity is not monetary but has significant value as a way of demonstrating how she is untouched by man and, once lost, would be the most evident proof of paternity. The play was written sometime around and thus draws a lot of reference from Elizabethan culture. All parties involved with the culture, men, women, the church, considered female virginity to be a desirable commodity that should be protected.

Shakespeare Comes Alive!

Many could argue that since he discovers Hero, his fiance, sleeping with another man the night before their wedding, Claudio is more concerned with the infidelity of this act. This, of course, refers to the strict adherence to purity and chastity that both churches that ruled England on and off during the Tudor dynasty the Protestant Church of England and the Catholic Holy Roman Empire supported and enforced. Virginity and maidenhood were bargaining tools for women at this time and perhaps the only real asset they could lay claim to; as a maiden, a woman had a greater ability to choose her destiny and rise in society.

Living in a conservative society, in which both tradition and religion proclaimed the natural inferiority of women, Elizabeth used her sex to advantage by creating a personal myth that raised her above the ordinary. Elizabeth's councillors pressured her towards marriage as the natural course, essential to ensure an undisputed succession. But Elizabeth found more advantages in remaining single.
