Description:

This paper presents an analysis of "Women in Athenian Law and Life" about the role of women in the life of ancient Athens, and explains many of Just's findings while offering a critique of his work.

From the Paper:

"Using myths and speeches of ancient Athenian times, Roger Just tries to paint a picture of the Athenian woman along with her role in society. Graduate of Melbourne University, he takes the viewpoint of a "social anthropologist", which gives his interpretations of Athenian society a special twist. Being Just's first and only book to date, he has left his mark on the subject of women in Athenian life."
