The Other Half of History explores an aspect of history that is often overlooked - the history of women.

In ancient Rome, political power was held by kings, emperors, magistrates and senators. What role did women play in the vast and expanding empire? By law, very little. Women had few rights, and were not allowed to take part in the public world of law and government. A woman's place was in the home. But evidence shows us that many women were capable and influential; some worked alongside their husbands in business, while others were patrons of the arts. And a few Roman women defied their traditional role and spoke out in public, sometimes with dramatic results.
