Would you still want to be a female in that era?

Good point.

Eleanor,Richard the Lion hearts mother enjoyed vast amounts of freedom. She divorced the king of France to marry Henry, she traveled to the holy lands, and ruled in her sons absence. Might makes right? Strong Independent women are everywhere in history. Check out Justinian's wife Theodora

Absolutely true. However I am sure there were quite a few strong, independent women in those times who gnashed their teeth at having to watch incompetent males bumble about simply because their brother, or husband or father or whomever had a penis. I doubt Machiavelli was read only by males.
