Write a 7-9 page argumentative research paper based on Greek Mythology and how men in power from Ancient Greece used these myths to reinforce women’s social statuses.
Thesis to be used: Greek mythology’s portrayal of women reinforced their social status as men of power utilized these myths as guidelines for how to treat and deal with women.
As you begin to write, it will be important to think about why myths, for example, Pandora and Helen of Troy, are useful myths when discussing women’s power or oppression. You’ll also want to consider why Greek mythology – and maybe these two examples in particular – is still relevant in discussions about women’s roles, male-dominated government systems, or even just storytelling. You’ll also want to think about how you are engaging with and intervening in the conversation about women’s roles in ancient Greece. Be careful not to simply restate what others have already written or simply write a research report.
