Huge blue-eyed savages was famous not only for looting and robberies: legends preserved the memory of beautiful maidens with whom they fell in love. First of all, they are full hostesses of the house.
When the host was absent, the authority of a woman is undeniable.
Vikings’ girlfriends The word “Viking” can not be classified as obsolete.
Vikings and everything connected with them are an integral part of the history of Norway. This period in the history of the country left an important mark on the life of Norwegian women.
Moreover, 10 centuries ago, Norway was probably the only European country where women’s rights were protected by law.
For example, a woman could demand a divorce if her husband was caught slovenly dressed ( the question of torn skin).
By the way, the national costume played a significant role in it. It can be said, that the costume was a “face” of a woman, demonstrating her skills as crafter.
To this day, every Norwegian has one or more national costumes.
At all times, local women love to adorn themselves in various ways.
Various crafts unusual for us are also made of minerals.
In addition to the national costumes and ornaments in traditional style, you can also find direct echoes of the Viking Age, and traces of Celtic culture.
Norwegian women can give birth and feed the children, without feeling like inferior members of society.
Norwegians give birth, as well as throughout Europe, rather late, at the age of 30-40, when they have already achieved a lot in life and have the opportunity to devote themselves completely to children. Scandinavian fathers, in turn, enjoy child care – and not in order to do family obligations, but simply because they like it.
