During this time “A woman's most important commodity was her virginity,” (Murphy 1).

There are many parallels between contracted motherhood and the dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale. In the novel, women are treated purely as fertility objects devoid of any rights in a patriarchal society. For some women entering contracted motherhood, they will be controlled by the fathers. For instance, in a particular pre-birth contract a woman had to agree to not taking medication without a doctor’s order, and to follow all of the doctor’s orders (Ketchum 626). The author also connects contracted motherhood with prostitution, each activity ‘rents’ a woman’s body.
Political integration between both empires had both similarities and differences, most notably being different with the ways they chose those to rule. In Imperial Rome, bureaucracy relied on local elites (landholders) and the middle-class citizens to control provinces. Imperial Rome was far less complex, compared to the bureaucracy of Han China. Many official positions within the government were bought or became hereditary through family wealth as opposed to earned by merit, due to this fact, the Roman bureaucracy often suffered from poor governance. One of the reasons the empire was so unified even
Besides being separated by an ocean, the Romans and Aztecs were very much alike. Both were ruled by emperors worshipped as a god, both had highly trained and skilled armies that contributed to their land control, and both believed in polytheistic religions. On the other hand, there are significant differences between the two empires, like the type of government system, economy, and social structure each civilization
Being savagely cruel and exceedingly brutal is called being barbaric. In the 13th century, Mongols had experienced many places around the Silkroad. Like the following Mongolia, China, and Persia.

Their policies and methods of colonization were consistent in every region they conquered because of this fact. The British colonies were inconsistent because the they were controlled by both the king and stock companies, which meant that different colonies had different incentives to settle. This hybrid of authority in each region meant that the North American colonies cannot be studied thematically as a whole, rather they must be analyzed as individual cases. These differences were determined by the motivations to settle the colonies and what environment the people lived
Roles Played By Women In Classical Civilizations Women weren’t always seen as equal to men, throughout history women have been mistreated and thought to be less than men.

Not only that, the people in the Han followed more of Confucian principles rather than Legalism, and “soon became the basis for the creation of a new state philosophy.” However, despite the differences, there were similarities as well. The ruler, Han Gaozu, and his successors kept some of the practices the Qin Emperor followed. These practices are the system of local government and the division of the central government into three ministries: the military, civil service, and censorate.
During the early classical era in Athens and the ancient era of the Han China Dynasty, both societies had striking political organizations and unique government powers that were created to guarantee an ordered and productive society. The systems contrast in that the Han emperor was chosen by heaven that made the dynasty a monarchy whereas Athens gave power to every citizen making the city-state a pure democracy. Despite their differences, the two share in that they used their government powers to place restrictions on both women and slaves and that both disregarded wealth when selecting their government officials. In contrast, the Han dynasty emperor was believed to be the son of heaven whereas in classical Athens the citizens held the political power in their hands making the city-state a pure democracy. Emperor Wu Ti of the Han dynasty ruled China because according to the mandate of heaven Wu Ti ruled as a representative of heaven but not as a divine being.
In the Aztec society women played almost no public role. In Mexica, the primary role of women was to bear children, especially if the children could become future soldiers. Mexica women who died in childbirth were honored the same as warriors who died honorably in battle. In India the two great Indian epics, the Mahabharata and the Ramayana, portrayed women as weak-willed and emotional and expected wives to devote themselves to their husbands. This played a big role in what the women’s role was in Indian society.
Nero was the most infamous emperor of Rome. Nero was very brutal he had his mother (Agrippina), his first wife (Octavia) and his second wife (Poppaea Sabina) murdered.

In order to understand the similarities of how order was in the Han Dynasty and Roman Empire from 300 BCE to 300 CE, the beginnings of each empire should be understood. Before the Han Dynasty rose, the Qin Dynasty, which overtaxed their citizens and regulated their laws by censoring education (burning books). The Roman Empire started out as a city-state which began to conquer neighboring regions, such as Italy, and expanded through warfare. However, from 300 BCE to 300 CE, the Han Dynasty and Roman Empire both created order in society by having an agrarian economy, ideologies, and establishing an authority that shaped social structures. The first similarity of how the Romans and the Han both created order in society, from 300 BCE to 300 CE, was their agrarian economy.
The Romans and the Han had similar methods of political control due to the fact that they both used their ancestors as a way to continue their political reign. For example, Roman senators would nominate their sons for public offices and in Han society dynastic control allowed a family to continuously reign. Women also played little to no roles in politics in Rome and Han China; however their methods of political control were different in that the Romans used wealth and property ownership as a deciding factor in appointing political leadership, while the Han was run under a dynasty which granted leadership within the ruling family. The Romans and Han used different methods of political control in their systems
