Number One Sunday Times Bestseller Why the popular resonance of 'mansplaining' (despite the intense dislike of the term felt by many men)? It hits home for us because it points straight to what it feels like not to be taken seriously: a bit like when I get lectured on Roman history on Twitter. Britain's best-known classicist Mary Beard, is also a committed and vocal feminist. With wry wit, she revisits the gender agenda and shows how history has treated powerful women. Her examples range from the classical world to the modern day, from Medusa and Athena to Theresa May and Hillary Clinton. Beard explores the cultural underpinnings of misogyny, considering the public voice of women, our cultural assumptions about women's relationship with power, and how powerful women resist being packaged into a male template. With personal reflections on her own experiences of the sexism and gendered aggression she has endured online, Mary asks: if women aren't perceived to be within the structures of power, isn't it power that we need to redefine? From the author of international bestseller SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome.

Beginning with Sappho in the seventh century B.C.E and ending with Egeria in the fifth century C.E., Snyder profiles ancient Greek and Roman women writers, including lyric and elegiac poets and philosophers and other prose writers. The writers are allowed to speak for themselves, with as much translation from their extant works provided in text as possible. In addition to giving readers biographical and cultural context for the writers and their works, Snyder refutes arguments representing prejudicial attitudes about women’s writing found in the scholarly literature. Covering writers from a wide historical span, this volume provides an engaging and informative introduction to the origins of the tradition of women’s writing in the West.

This is the first general book on Antonia Augusta in any language. As the daughter of Mark Antony, mother of Claudius, grandmother of Caligula and great-grandmother of Nero, Antonia is a supremely significant figure in Roman history - all of her life was spent very close to the seat of power in the new monarchy. Nikos Kokkinos examines the way in which the figure of Antonia is reflected and made visible to us through a remarkable variety of archaeological evidence. He demonstrates how materials such as inscriptions, papyri, coins and sculpture can be used in the study of individual personalities in antiquity. The literary sources are supplemented and corrected so that Antonia's dramatic life and its bearing on the lives of those close to her are presented from new perspectives. With lavish illustrations, Kokkinos gives a totally rounded picture of the wealthiest Roman matron of her time, whose power and influence were far-reaching. Important material is presented about the position of women in Roman society; the degree of freedom they could exercise in making moral choices; their control of property and their direct influence on public life. Antonia Augusta has long warranted a full historical and archaeological treatment. Nikos Kokkinos has provided this in a book which in broader terms has been described by Fergus Millar as 'a significant contribution to the understanding of the early Empire itself.' Ancient historians and archaeologists, as well as the general reader, will find much of value and interest in Antonia Augusta: Portrait of a Great Roman Lady.
