In the Middle Ages, men and women went on pilgrimage for the salvation of their souls, for adventure, to fulfill a vow, seek a cure, or because they were sentenced to do so. It is hard to know what percentage of pilgrims were women. In Canterbury Tales, only three narrators are women. Fourteenth-Century mystic Margery of Kempe (1373-1428) left an account of her pilgrimages. http://www.luminarium.org/medlit/margery.htm Again, we have evidence from medieval art.
I have walked six different medieval pilgrimage routes in France, Spain and Portugal, and these experiences brought me closer to the medieval world. There is no evidence that the heroine of my trilogy went on pilgrimage. To find out who does goes on pilgrimage and for what reason, you will have to read the Viscountess and the Templars.
