Storyboard Text

  • Mother! I'm finally 18 years old! Are you happy that I've become an official Athenian Citizen?
  • Yes, I am. It's too bad that I'm never going to be one since I'm a female.
  • Today is the first official meeting I'm going! Are you going?
  • I won't be going since I'm not an official citizen. 
  • I'm not accounted as an official citizen since I was not born here in Athens. Females and males not born in Athens are not allowed to become official citizens.
  • Why? But you're 18 years old too.
  • 12 years later...
  • Yes! I'm finally 30 years old, I can be selected join the Council!
  • I'm here at the Assembly with at least 6,000 people by my side. We meet every 10 days on a hill to discuss laws. We approve the laws.
  • Each of us gets to speak our own thoughts, and sometimes there is a water-clock to limit our time to speak. We're proud to be Athenian Citizens.
