OUCH! So, were you in a 'stroppy' mood when it happened? Sounds like maybe you beat up your stove! Hope you're feeling better now.

I think the role of women in ancient Greece is misunderstanding. We tend to compare the status of those ancient women with the women now. We can't think like that! In Greece the women were not considered inferior to men. That was the way of life back in those times and the women had a special role in society. The Greek women were also responsible for the upbringing of their children and their house. There are some examples of women who took part in social and political matters; and let's not forget all these marvellous female characters in Greek tragedies and comedies. If they were so inferior ,as you say, no writer would have mentioned them!

Sorry , it's late ( 3.15! ) Confused . I'm going to bed.
