@NorwaySwedenDenmark Well, the first written Danish laws were very early and supposedly just commiting ancient legal customs to paper.

Anyway the sexism of "Viking" culture is a debatable issue. They appear to have had equal legal rights for women and anti-rape laws, but they also had slaves, including slave "mistresses" that might have been expected to follow their master in death. And in the first writen laws, the women's rights were not as equal in Sweden as they were in Denmark.
