    A. I think. Because when there husband left to do whatever, the women controlled the house.

    Then how is it A? If they did control the house..they did have responsibility and etc.

    Because it was only when the husband left. So it wasn't for that long. They still had responsibility but not a lot.

    None of these seem very sound. Conceivably the first, but only if "the manor" is restricted to things like manorial justice, or crop supervision, et cetera, and entirely excludes the running of the lord's household, which would of course be the purview of the dominant noblewoman. The opportunity to read and write would generally be pretty limited to everyone, man or woman, noble or peasant, since (1) it wasn't very necessary to daily life, and (2) where it was, you could always just pay a few coppers to a starving monk to be a scribe. A noblewoman might have somewhat fewer opportunities than her husband, who probably had to write letters every now and then, and read manor rolls, but there were plenty of very famous well-lettered noblewoman in the Middle Ages, e.g. Eleanor of Aquitaine. The others seem silly.
