Ariana Blige HUM 221001 Jeffrey Knapp December 5, 2019 Hello, I am calliope and I am from Athens Greece. I am a mother to two beautiful children and a wife to my husband. As a mother and wife, I hold different responsibilites than others in the household. Woman in Athens typically stayed inside and did housework, so an ideal day for me would be to prepare the food for the family, I will also weave baskets and cloth and if need be I will go behind the slaves to see if they’ve completed their tasks as well. “A respectable woman’s main role in ancient Athens was to stay home, keep pretty, and bear children. Her life centered on the house and the children. Most citizen’s wives had slaves to do the cooking, cleaning, and grocery shopping.”(ancientathens.org). women during this time really didn’t have a voice in their own political rights. If I wasn’t in love with the person whom I was married to, I didn’t have the choice to divorce, on the male could. If my husband were to divorce me, I would have lost all rights to owning my own child/children I’ve birthed.” she had no right to wonder
