A Midsummer Night´s Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Women didn't have as many privileges as men in ancient Greece. For example, they were not allowed to eat or sleep in the same room as men, go to the Olympics, or go into the marketplace or streets of the city.Since they spent a lot of time in the house, their most important tasks, aside from having children, were running the household and managing the slaves. Women in less wealthy households did not have slaves and had to do all the housework themselves. In peasant households, the women were in charge of working the fields.

Ancient greek women role

Athenian LawThere was a law in the city of Athens which gave to its citizens the power of compelling their daughters to marry whomsoever they pleased; for upon a daughter's refusing to marry the man her father had chosen to be her husband, the father was empowered by this law to cause her to be put to death

The man was in charge of the family and the house. Most men worked during the day as businessmen or farmers. When they were at home, they were treated with great respect. Even during dinner, the men laid on couches and were fed and entertained by the slaves while the women and children ate in another room.Men were given the most responsibility and, therefore, were considered the most important people in ancient Greece.

Ancient Greek Man Role

Women in many Greek city-states were expected to lead secluded lives, staying at home, spinning weaving and supervising the work of the slavesThere was a form of democracy in Athens, but it was available only to a limited section of the population, adult male Athenian-born citizens. Women, slaves, and foreigners, did not have any say in government.Sports were more violent than they are today, there were no team games, people participated as individuals, and there were no second prizes. Winning was everything. Ancient Greek Religion was very different from modern religion. Greeks believed in a variety of different gods and goddesses, They sacrificed animal and theirselves to their gods to try and gain their approval.Slavery was a widespread practice in ancient Greece for instance, in Athens about 50% of the population were slaves.

---Women are free and respected, and have the same rights and power as men----Nowadays democracy is for everyone for instance, women can participate in the government---The modern society has a another vision of life and honor, emphazising the team work and the self care.--Nowadays, greek society only believe in one true god. Their religion is called Greek Orthodox Church. Religions with smaller numbers of followers include Islam, Catholicism, Evangelicalism and Hellenic Paganism.---Slavery nowadays is illegal, there are organizations that punish the buying and selling of people. As a result slavery has been decreasing al over the world but there are still some illegal companies that enslave people.
