Was Ancient Egypt A Proto-Feminist Society?
"As independent citizens equal to men under the law, Egyptian women could own their own property, buy and sell it, keep hold of it despite marriage ... They did work in the public sphere alongside men at every level of society, ... [and] surviving accounts also reveal they received the same pay as male colleagues for undertaking the same work."
