Greek women in Antiquity were restricted from participating in outside events in which men were involved. Scandinavian women in Antiquity however were not in any way restricted from participating in outside events. Two cultures from the same race, but with such different views on and behaviour in relation to women. Why?
Well, in Scandinavia there were no African or Asian slaves, and perhaps even more importantly; there were no freed African or Asian slaves walking about freely in society.
