The Vikings II (women and trade)
Women used to urge men to undertake raids and revenge to reinstate lost honour.
Slave trade was one of the most important aspects of many Viking's businesses.
A woman's honour was affected positively or negatively according to her husband's actions.
In extreme situations, women could take full responsibilty of getting revenge to restore her family's honour.
Women were supporters of great importance for their husbands in battle.
Women had participation in decision-makings such as divorcing themselves and things related with their marriage.
Women took the lead in remembering the fallen and keeping their memories alive.
Farmers who had the opportunity were able to deal with trading and/or organize voyages of plunder.
Any act of violence against women was considered to be dishonourable, and a man who committed that could expect reprisals from the woman's family.
The Viking's ships were vital for the mobilization of their goods for trading.
