Is the Value of Ancient Women Different?

Evidence from the ancient past show that female value was likely a little different than before the sexism that later became so pervasive. Today, with our now male centric religions or the many cultures of our current or past historic societies, which seem often to devalue or give a lesser status or limited value of women. Many present day thinkers may find it difficult to comprehend that women could have been valued, be equal to some extent, or even hold a position or power, especially political power in early historic or prehistoric times but even more so in the Middle East region where today, the most heavy restrictions are on women’s rights.

Aren’t you worried that you are too obsessed with god and religion Damien? I am not obsessed with god or religion any more than a firefighter would be about fires.
