Sarah Pomeroy helped bring about a revolutionary turn of perspective in which the old adage, "history is written by and about men," no longer holds true.

We will revisit her classic –

" Goddesses , Whores, Wives, and Slaves " - with supplemental material on some dynastic mothers, to see how women lived in ancient Greece and Rome.

Please bring handouts and material to share if you wish.

Presenter Michael Rosenthal has completed extensive graduate work in theology, philosophy and psychology at the St. Paul Seminary and the University of Iowa and Western Illinois University.
