Review quote

"Raphael Sealey understands that it is necessary to read between the lines for the unstated assumptions that explain why women were treated at times like children, but at other times as responsible adults. His methodology should provide a model for further studies of ancient Greek law. His conclusion, though perhaps surprising, is surely valid: that although never the equal of men, women were protected by law, and cared for. Sealey's book should become a standard reference work on the subject."--Mary R. Lefkowitz, Wellesley College
