    good but at times simple view of women

    There are books written exclusively for the experts and books written exclusively for everyone else. The best thing about Cantarella's 'Pandora's Daughters' is that it occupies a middle ground. Her chapter on Matriarch is the best I've read anywhere, well researched with the issue understood but all sides, she gives a practicle and realistic answer to the question of such a political condition. Overall however she has a very negative view of women's roles and seems far more concerned with the upper classes than anything else. I don't find this book as realistic in its approach as her 'Bisexuality in the Ancient World'. Her section on Roman women and Christianity is weaker in terms of scholarship and amount of space than her Greece and pre-Greece sections.
