The Women of Egypt Chocked the World: In Egypt, the genders were basically equal, and because the salary was the same, many women worked to better their family economy


When the ancient greek historian Herodot visited Egypt in 400 B.C., he nearly choked on his wine: “the people here are turning human traditions upside down. The women here go to markets and do business, while the men are home weaving”.
To Herodot, it was pure madness. Greek women in his time had no rights and weren’t even considered to be independent individuals. They were at all time to obey the man of the house, and could not leave the special ‘women-room’ without the permission of their husband. Very different was it in Egypt, where women in centuries had enjoyed basically the same rights as men. The reason of the equality in Egypt was their believe in that the universe, in the dawn of time, was born to couples between different male and female Gods. The universe was therefore equally the property of women and men. 
To keep the universal equality, according to the Egypts, it was crucial that there was balance between the Gods and the humans - and between the two genders. They believed that the goddess Maat looked upon the humans and made sure that there was equal justice and truth. The religious beliefs were also a part of the laws of Egypt, where women were secured a high level of equality. Men and woman got the same punishments for the same crimes. Property was heired down through the women’s line, and women could manage their own land, animals and houses.
Especially along the poor, it was crucial that the women - besides having to clean the house - also took a job outside the home, to help the economy of the family. 
Marriage didn’t mean that an egyptian womans freedom dissapeared. She could keep her property and even loan out money: a text describes how women with a sense for economy loaned three lupms of silver to her husband with a yearly rent of an impressive 30%. The woman could also file for divorce if her husband proved to be useless, and remarry - though at time with compensation. In a marriage contract from 340 B.C., a woman writes to her husband: “If I turn you down as a husband, because I do not want you anymore and want another - then I have to give you 22 grams of silver and dismiss a third of our joined property”.
Both the greeks and the romans were known to often give their newborn girls to wild animals, because they were seen as a burden. Boys, on the other hand, could give the family wealth and prestige. In Egypt, that was unthinkable. Here, the girls could work and earn money for the family. An old ancient egyptian advice thus went: “you shall treat your childen equally. You never know which one will treat you nice”.
