Transcript of Life in the 17th Century

Life in 17th Century France Daily Life Many people in the 17th century were farmers, bakers, merchants.
Women were responsible for the families health, food, and washing clothes.
Men usually had a routine day: went to work, returned to eat, slept, and did it over again. Men and Women Teenagers There was no such thing as a "teenager" in the 17th century.
A child would do chores and schoolwork
Boys worked as apprentices
Girls were not allowed to do anything but work around the house and help their mother Religion Social Classes Louis XIV did not fancy the protestant community
He made a policy which intimidated the protestants
This decreased the population by emmigration Social Classes in France during the 17th century were called estates. These estates were:
The Clergy: made up only about two percent of the population, and included religious figures, like bishops. This was the first estate.
The Nobles: this second estate made up four to five percent of the population, and consisted of wealthy land owners.
The People: The rest of France was made from this third estate. It included the wealthy middle class all the way to the peasants. Fashion Shifts: these were shirts worn by women, but that do not have much difference from a man's. They had collars, sometimes edged with lace, and had wide open fronts that, for the women, were tucked into bodices. They were often quite revealing. Bodice: The bodice would be tightly laced at a woman's ribs, and would be worn under the shirt.
The tight cinch at the waist was meant to give the woman a smaller figure. Stockings/Shoes
Women generally wore two kinds of shoes: mules and latchets.
Latchet shoes were very similar to the kind of shoe worn by men, even sharing the same name.
Mule shoes were backless, made with wooden soles and leather.
Stockings were very commonly worn, and often colorful; women would mainly wear red. Head Wear
There were four different types of this piece of clothing:
Lappet caps
Tied head linen
Wrapped head linen
These head accessories were mostly white, however, some were embroidered Works Cited
