Abstract [en]

The women of ancient Athens have been studied to greath lenght, yet it is still a controversial subject where researchers still debate the seclusion of women. This study concerns the wifes positon in the household of claissical and hellenistic Athens, what were her social relations to the members inside the household. This paper will move in a cronological order starting with classical writers, mainly Xenophon. The hellenistic chapter will use the same concept of working with hellenistic writers, mainly Menander and Theophrastus, to see how the social relations for the married woman has changed, or how it haven’t. In both these chapters there will also be discussions of what work that is commonly named for women, what it represents, and the concerns of its authenticity. This study will also use archaeological material for this research where the reader is going to be able to se movement patterns of the ancient woman in her home. Also problem we have when looking for the athenian woman in the architecture. New types of sculptures arrives during the hellenistic times, what can they tell us about status and roles of women? Finally there will be a conclusion of the differences in the status of married women and if she were more or less secluded during the hellenistic times versus the classical period
