Something that I’m interested in learning more about is gender roles in society. I’ve read and heard a bit about it over the years, and have been looking for a chance to study it more in-depth. Recently, I came across an amazing group called The Representation Project that provided a way for me to take action against things of this nature. When it came time to choose a topic to write an inquiry about, I was instantly reminded of this movement.
As I have been studying the gender roles of women in classical societies, I have discovered that despite religious stories with prominent females found within many of the religions of each respective society, it had no correlation with the way women were treated. I was surprised to find that religious beliefs had no impact whatsoever on the roles that these ancient women had in their given culture.
