As a woman one would rather stay in Sparta than in Athens because the women of Sparta got to have sovereignty, mobility/status, rights and respect. The women of Sparta got greater independence than the Athenians because the Spartans believed that in spite of the person’s gender all Spartans had a responsibility to serve the warlike end of Sparta. Furthermore, Spartan women were taught to read, write and protect themselves, they were taught these things just so that they could be independent and so that they would not have to depend on men to do their work for them while they were at war, another reason was so that women could produce strong babies if they were strong.

The loyalists saw the patriots’ as traitors in their mother country and saw themselves as the honorable ones who stood by the empire and the crown. Whilst from the patriots’ perspective the loyalists were just traitors too blind to the oppression of the British government, Moderates were complacent people, nonpartisan and not interested in the war and generally uninvolved.
