At what point did girls learn to be women so to speak? The situation is I have an orphan girl who I want to have been wandering around/being a street rat for about two years before she meets the protagonist, and I want her to sort of have a lack of manners/propriety/shame etc. around other people, in particular men, as she doesn't understand how females are supposed to act around men and such. So basically, at what point would female children have ceased just being "children" and had to learn "girl stuff" for approaching adulthood?
I would even be happy to know answers from a general Middle Ages perspective, like European even. Anything to start with.
Searched: girls in the Joseon, growing up in the Joseon, girls in the middle ages, etc. I get way too many Kdrama results when I search Joseon. =/
