Woman in Transylvania

I wonder what life would be like for a woman who lived in Transylvania in the early 1950s.

From what I know there was not much difference from hundreds of years before, if you lived on a farm. All the women faced hard work and being the head of the house, they would clean and care for the children. They helped in the fields. They gave birth. They also had less education, but that depended on the culture as well.

The cities were different, as it was where much of the new technology would arrive first. But that is now things are. Even here.

I wonder why that is, but I suppose that people had their own methods of working and wanted to farm the way they were taught.

It is similar to Royalty I suspect. Think of all the traditions that remain even after centuries.
