Sarah Pomeroy’s groundbreaking Goddesses, Whores, Wives, and Slaves introduced scholars, students, and general readers to an exciting new area of inquiry: women in classical antiquity. Almost fifty years later, New Directions in the Study of Women in the Greco-Roman World builds upon and moves beyond Pomeroy’s seminal work to represent the next step in this interdisciplinary field.

  • Edited by Ronnie Ancona (Hunter College and The Graduate Center, CUNY) and Georgia Tsouvala (Illinois State University)
  • Features contributions by major scholars in the field of the study of women in Greco-Roman antiquity
  • Examines the many facets of women’s lives from cosmetics and athletics, to public visibility, activism and legislation, and the social power of non-elite women
