About the Author

Sarah B. Pomeroy is Distinguished Professor of Classics at Hunter College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York.


Spartan Women is a landmark in the history of ancient women because it attempts for the first time to offer an account of the lives of both elite and non-elite Spartan women and to do so by sifting through a very difficult body of evidence. New England Classical Journal The scholars who will want to include this work in their libraries will also consult it as a reference handbook with the help of its ample index ... a book packed with rich detail. New England Classical Journal It is a pleasure to recommend a book of reasonable length for school sixth forms as well as University courses. The Journal of Classics Teaching ... a very welcome book on an inadequately understood subject. Pomeroy's scholarly expertise for this study is firmly established; her research has been fundamental to examinations of women's roles in classical antiquity. American Journal of Philology ... the book marks a significant advance for the study of women in ancient Sparta, as Pomeroy is the first to present the comprehensive evidence for the importance of Spartan women broadly across various arenas of Spartan society and to provide meaningful interpretations for misunderstood aspects of Spartan women's lives.
