449 inventories of deceased Damascenes around 1700 help us to approach a subject which is related to gender studies, since it allows us to compare the economic, social and even cultural domains of feminine and masculine worlds. In this society, the social differences were still signi cant, and women received a patrimony which was clearly inferior to that of men. It consisted of certain items: some real estate, but primarily jewelry and domestic goods. There are few objects that indicate public activities by women and which match men's inventories of this period. Women ruled, with more or less variety and fantasy, the furniture of the house which was used not only for rest and sleep, but also as a venue for receiving guests.

Dans cette société, où les différences sociales restent déterminantes, les femmes possèdent un patrimoine nettement inférieur à celui des hommes et dont les éléments sont bien particuliers: quelques biens immobiliers, mais avant tout des bijoux et des biens domestiques. Peu d'objets qui ouvrent vers le monde et le temps: les femmes dominent, avec plus ou moins de variété et de fantaisie, l'intérieur textile de la maison destiné aux fonctions du repos, du sommeil, mais aussi de la réception.
