Storyboard Text

  • My name is Eliza and I am moving to Ancient Greece in 500 B.C.E. But first, I have to decide if I want to live in Athens, or Sparta.
  • Here in Sparta, women have many rights. They can own or inherit property, and are even allowed to fight along side the men! They are responsible for bringing up their sons in a harsh environment, with discipline to make them great warriors. This is very important.
  • In Athens, women have very little rights. They have no citizenship, and are considered property of their husbands. They mostly handle the domestic needs of the house.
  • When I visited Athens it was nice, but I didn't like not having rights as a woman.
  • You can't fight! You can't be a citizen! You are nothing but mans property!
  • When I visited Sparta, I felt right at home. I was finally allowed to fight and have my own land!
  • Go ahead, fight if you want! Have some land! I respect you!
  • In the end, I decided to live in Sparta. I have more rights as a woman and I am now married with a son I am raising to be a warrior. I am very happy with my life, although I am not allowed to be a citizen.
