"The classic, groundbreaking account of women's lives in Greece and Rome... The first treatment of women in the ancient world reflect the critical insights of modern feminism."What did women do in ancient Greece and Rome? Did Socrates' wife Xanthippe ever hear his dialogues on beauty and truth? How many many women actually read the histories of Herodotus and Thucydides? When pagan goddesses were as powerful as gods, why was the status of women generally so low? Why, in traditional histories, is half the population effectively invisible?
