In Ancient China, they also got married at a very early age and also couldn’t talk their fathers out of that. Once they were married, they “ were no longer was allowed to worship their own ancestors. A wife's loyalty had to be to her husband's family, both living and dead.” 1 They were also treated as servants at their homes. On Greece, many women worked as slaves that performed any duty their masters wanted them to do. Some women also worked at shops or bakeries. A lot of women were prostitutes divided into 2 classes: normal prostitutes (brothel) and higher-class prostitutes. On China most of the women stayed at their homes as servants to their husbands and other women were slaves that were traded. It was very hard for women in China to have honorable jobs, if not impossible. In Ancient China, once they were old, they were greatly respected. People in the village often came to them for advices for they were considered to be very wise. When they got married and gave birth to a child, they were more respected by their husbands. Men from wealthy families quite often had several wives, in the hope of having several sons.”

On Greece it was mostly the same thing; they were respected just a little and sometimes they had 0 respect from their families. Just a couple of women were respected. These were mostly successful and smart (proven) women. “ Some exceptional women rose above the limitations of Greek society and gained lasting acclaim as poets like Sapho of Lesbos, philosophers like Arete of Cyrene , leaders like Gorgo of Sparta and Aspasia of Athens, and physicians like Agnodice of Athens.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
