Storyboard Text

  • Around 600 B.C.E...
  • Hurray!
  • I guess we will make a democracy because us rulers need to know what leader you think is better. But, only rich free Athenian men get all the right.
  • Hurray!
  • Since free rich adult males got all the rights, none of the rights came to the women in Athens. They could not even go outside and parts of the house...
  • Okay...
  • I wish I could protest but I can't even go outside to even share my ideas, only if there are plays.
  • Bye Honey, I am going to work!
  • Thank you, Solon.
  • Since I am the leader, I will make a new rule. I will let the poor adult males sit down in the assembly to vote, and also share their ideas.
  • Thank you, Solon.
  • Around 594 B.C.E the males elected a new leader called Solon...
  • Thank you, Solon.
  • After Solon, a new person comes and rises, his name is Cleithenes. He has ideas for Athens...
  • Fine with me, as long I have enough rights, I'm good.
  • Since I am the new ruler of Athens, to make everything equal, I will let the women and the poor have the rights the rich males. But, Women will not be able to vote. 
  • Finally we can get rights!
  • There is a place called the Agora which is like a court. The only thing is there are no lawyers, so people have to state their own problems.
  • This person to the right stole my pencil without my consent.
  • What is your part of the problem, sir..
  • I was borrowing it.
  • Nowadays, in the U.S.A, you probably know that there is a democracy that originated in Athens, Greece.
  • Thank you, Athenians!
  • We would not have been with this government today without the Athenians starting this. Everyone should thank them.
