In Part 1 we examine the ideological world of Roman gender. Women were dismissed as second class by religion, philosophy and medicine. We also explore the practical and legal limits on their freedom.

listener Mr S P Pack
wonders, on the question regarding women in the Roman world, if there where ‘any effects’ from the deallings with neigbouring Etruscans??
As the culturally different and wealthy Etruscans had perhaps very equal rights for woman…
I know the Etrucans where eventually deffeted through Roman coruption, by allowing some invidual people greater wealth and control in some council positions..
So i have 2 questions:
1) where the Etruscans ‘Ethinically’ so much different to the Romans?
2) Did some assimilation into Roman culture bring perhaps any lasting Etruscan values?
Thanks so much for this platform, I love this show!
