This volume explores how women in antiquity influenced cultural spheres usually thought of as male, such as politics, economics, science, law, and the arts.
The contributors look at examples from around the ancient world, asking how far traditional definitions of culture describe male spheres of activity, and examining to what extent these spheres were actually created and perpetuated by women. It is shown that women, through marriage and motherhood, tended to perpetuate traditional male values, yet also made significant contributions of their own.
Written by an international range of renowned academics, "Women's Influence on Classical Civilization" provides a valuable wider perspective on the roles and influence on women in the societies of the Greek and Roman worlds.
