The medieval age was an age when men reigned supreme because brain followed brawn. Men were superior because they were physically stronger, and with strength came aggression.Women provided the necessities of life; they were the custodians of Maslow's hierarchy! WinterFest reflected all this accurately.
Women manned (!) stalls. Women sold entry tickets. Women painted faces. Women did not organise in a publicly obvious way. I did not see them striding about with manilla folds and clipboards. They did not announce over microphones.
However, one woman rode a steed in the jousting. One woman shot an arrow and hit a target. WinterFest was meant to reflect the past, not duplicate it. Not for me, at any rate.
