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.”

I   think is a lot better how they were treated in Ancient China since they were   m ore respected like they deserve. I believe that wo m en should always be respected since they are equal and so m etimes superior to   m en; even if there are so me   that  aren’t, they are still human beings and every one of them should be treated with  respect by society.

    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.
