Read the quote about women in Roman society.

“The position of the Roman matron was quite different from that of the Greek matron in the time of Pericles. The Roman matron was mistress in her own household. As the husband took charge of all external transactions, so the wife was supreme in household arrangements.”

—James Donaldson, Woman; Her Position and Influence in Ancient Greece and Rome

Based on your knowledge of the role of women in the Roman republic, provide evidence to prove the author’s claim that the position of Roman women was different from that of Greek women.

  2. Okay, the only thing I could think of was
    That it is tradition for the women of the Roman Republic to be supreme in household arrangements.
    But I know I need more than just that.

  5. The exact role and status of women in the Roman world, and indeed in most ancient societies, has often been obscured by the biases of both ancient male writers and 19-20th century CE male scholars, a situation only relatively recently redressed by modern scholarship which has sought to more objectively assess women's status, rights, duties, representation in the arts, and daily lives; and all this from almost exclusively male source material dealing with a male-dominated Roman world.

    Women in the ancient Greek world had few rights in comparison to male citizens. Unable to vote, own land, or inherit, a woman’s place was in the home and her purpose in life was the rearing of children. This, though, is a general description, and when considering the role of women in ancient Greece one should remember that information regarding specific city-states is often lacking, is almost always from male authors, and only in Athens can their status and role be described in any great detail. Neither are we sure of the practical and everyday application of the rules and laws that have survived from antiquity. We do know that Spartan women were treated somewhat differently than in other states. For example, they had to do physical training like men, were permitted to own land, and could drink wine.

  8. I put “Roman matrons had more responsibilities and more freedom than Greek women. Greek women were there really only to raise babies and children only. In certain city states, they had a bit more freedom like in Sparta, where they did physical training. Roman women could learn skills, own land, manage the servants, or even divorce their husbands.” and I got 10 out of 4 😳 Don’t copy the same thing because the teachers might notice

    copy what they said and paste it and this is what i got
    Roman ladies had a greater number of obligations and more opportunity than Greek ladies. Greek ladies were there truly just to bring up infants and youngsters as it were. In certain city states, they had somewhat more opportunity like in Sparta, where they did actual preparing. Roman ladies could learn abilities, own property, deal with the workers, or even separation their spouses

    always use this if your taking it of the internet!!!

  21. ya most greek women didnt do much, but the spartans had much more freedom than the others, they could join in sports and learnt a couple of things. But mostly staying healthy bc sparta wanted healthy babies to fight for them. and since all the men were gone for a while in their lives many women got to do whatever they wanted.
