Fathers and Daughters in Roman Society
Women and the Elite Family
Judith P. Hallett


Judith Hallett illuminates a paradox of elite Roman society of the classical period: its members extolled female domesticity and imposed numerous formal constraints on women's public activity, but many women in Rome's leading families wielded substantial political and social influence.

First published in 1984.
