- The Eastern Hinterlands
Interesting, something to check out. Spartan women were known to be tough (the "bring my son on a shield" story) but considering their culture it's no surprise.Depends what type of Greeks. The Spartans, for instance, had lots of respect and gave many special privileges to Spartiate women, from young girls to older matrons, to the point that later philosophers blamed the good relations between the sexes on the weakness of the Spartan culture and society.
