Amazing Facts You Didn't Know About Ancient Egypt!TV
Here are the most amazing facts you probably didn’t know about ancient egypt! 9 – Equality has been around, I told you! Seems like the society of ancient Egypt was well ahead of its time on this issue, because men and women were equal under the law! That meant women were free to live without a legal male guardian and could make their own decisions. There were however, certain limits in occupations. For example, a woman wouldn’t be allowed to hold a position in the army nor would a man be expected to be in charge of a household. However, everything else was equal. For example, women could marry whomever they wanted and later on divorce if things didn’t work out. Women could also buy and manage their own property, meaning a woman could inherit things down the female line in her family. Another fun fact was that neither six was favored when it came to childbearing, as both sixes were seen as equal. The Ancient Egyptian gods and goddess are another proof of how far the equality went, as each six was determined to be as important as the other, and that each six had a unique set of skills. Hey, that makes total sense to me, I KNEW men and women are different! Also, you might be surprised to learn that both sixes wore make-up, something that was more of a social norm rather than gender right.
