Praise

“The first general treatment of women in the ancient world to reflect the critical insights of modern feminism. Though much debated, its position as the basic textbook on women’s history in Greece and Rome has hardly been challenged.”–Mary Beard, Times Literary Supplement

“Pomeroy’s pioneering study on the status and activities of women in antiquity was, and has remained, a milestone in classical historiography.”–Peter Green, Univerity of Texas at Austin
