Your question would have been more appropriately placed within the 'Life Inside a Castle' forum, however the following link may provide you with some data. http://www.millersv.edu/~english/homepage/duncan/medfem/domestic.html

women lived both more active and more sheltered lives then they do today.Most of the things havng to do with cooking and serving food were done by men.A queen or lady surrounded by her own court of gentlemen which went to a lords court to be trained just like squires.Women would have spent much of the day cutting cloth,sewing garments and embroidering them,caring for and raising young children;but they also practiced archery and hunted with the bow and falconry too.They certainly also practiced horsemanship and went riding-the sidesaddle was invented late in the MA in france;but never became normal;but only fashionable. Women and men played numerous games with each other such as:chess;tables(bacgammon-forgive my bad spelling);morris(somewhat like our checkers) and gambled with dice and played a variety of physical games and sports.They of course also sang,played musical instruments and read books.Gentlewomen were normally literate,unlike gentlemen,and also publicly read books as a form of entertainment.

The medieval lady or queen would have been responsible for providing for the household particularly when the men went away to war.She was also capable of defending the castle and its inhabitents in the absence of her lord.
