Oliver Cromwell And Women

In the 17th century Oliver Cromwell brought a bill before Parliament against the 'Vice of painting and wearing Patches and immodest Dresses of Women'.

Included in this was legislation that if a woman trapped a man into marriage by presenting herself not as nature intended, but with artificial teeth, iron stays, hoops, or bolstered hips, she should be tried for witchcraft and the marriage annuled.
