Culture of Ancient Athens
Women in Ancient Athens
In certain ways, women were very highly respected in Athenian culture, although they had very little choices about the direction their life would take. Less traveled alternative routes were available, however.
Sex and the Citizen
You couldn't walk through Athens without noticing statues in the buff. Sex, sexuality, and the human form were looked on very differently than is common in modern Western tastes.
Children in Ancient Athens
The typical life of a child in ancient Athens was far different from our culture today, and varied drastically depending on the gender.
