Women of the Reformation or Here's Hoping My Wife Will Open a Brewery

There's a cool post here on some of the influential women of the Reformation including this on Katherine von Bora, Martin Luther's wife:

Katherine von Bora was a former nun who married Martin Luther. They were married for 21 years and had six children. Her quick tongue, humor, and stubbornness matched Martin’s—no small feat. She managed their home (which was frequently full of students), had a large garden and livestock, fished and farmed, and ran a brewery. She also managed their money and took care of their extended household. Martin called her “My Lord Katie.”
