Women In History: Hellenistic Vs. Assyrian

Satisfactory Essays
Hellenistic vs. Assyrian "Babe, go make me a sandwich." Since the dawn of time, women have been considered inferior to men. Most societies throughout history viewed women as poisonous or unimportant compared to male counterparts. Women in Hellenistic Greece were treated with more respect than women in Assyrian societies because Greek men saw women as good and perfect, chaste and innocent with no possible way of "poisoning" a man. Poisoning refers to destroying the man 's chances at reaching the after-life, which Assyrians didn 't believe in.
