The Great Roman Empire
Transcript of The Great Roman Empire
Why Rome was the great country we know tod
Education in Ancient Rome progressed from an informal, familial system of education in the early Republic to a tuition-based system during the late Republic and the Empire. Teachers charged high tuition fees so that only the rich and powerful could have their children educated.
Women played an active and important role in the family, social events, and business ventures
Women In Rome
Children ages 6-10 were placed in Elementary School
Ages 10-13 were placed in a school called Grammaticus, which is the latin word for Grammarian (Grammar school)
At 13 years old, they would be moved to rhetorics and debating skills
Very few girls went to Grammaticus or Rhetorics and Debate skills and therefore stayed at home and learned household skills.
Some women exerted considerable influence over political affairs such as Julia Mamaea; she became emporer at age 13 and her goal was to restore prestige and order to the Senate in order to reduce the power and influence of the military. In her rule she brought to the people of Rome 12 years of peace

Women also attended senate functions, public games and entertainment, enjoyed freedom and independence, could own preperty, work, and their own businesses.
