What are the rights of citizens in Rome and America?
Unequal Rights in America and Rome
Many citizens in Rome didnt have the same rights with each other. Free Romans that were male were able to have all the rights citizens were given in Rome. However, slaves didn't get to have almost any rights that free male Romans had. If slaves are able to pay for their freedom, they still get limited rights. Roman women were also given limited rights. Basically,women were given almost the same rights men had.
In America, almost both men and women were given the same rights. Women weren't allowed to vote in the past. This ended when women suffrage groups helped make an establishment that allowed women to vote. America also allowed slavery until the year 1865.
