In case you are interested in reading the primary documents that your peers read in class today to get a fuller sense of the lives of women in ancient Greece, here is the complete document with all of the different sources, including the ones I read out loud.
They are all from the Diotima archive, “Women’s Lives in Greece and Rome” by Marty R. Lefkowitz and Maureen B. Fant
We asked the following questions about each of the sources
1. Summarize the passage BRIEFLY. What are the main ideas
2. What is the tone of the passage? What is its purpose
3. Are any laws or rituals concerning women explained in the passage
4. What is your personal reaction to this passage? Is there anything that shocks or surprises you?
