Romen Women-Ancient World
753 BCE - 300 BCE
Women were looked down on if they enhanced their appearance through makeup, hair dyes, or wigs. Men saw it as dishonesty and falseness of character.
Women did not possess Roman citizenship.
Employment and Education
Roman women in poor families had to work hard, just like the men. Some worked as tavern keepers, waitresses, cooks, or on a farm. Women with these jobs were considered to be on the same level as prostitutes.
Marriage and Ownership
Upperclass women rarely left the house since they didn't have to work, but when they did they were transported in curtain litters carried by slaves, to avoid filth on the streets and to remain unseen.
