we did not compete naked but they did and we did not have to stop wars to be in them and women were not aloud to be in the greek Olympics or even see them
You have to be at least 20 years old to enter the Olympics. Women could not watch or participate in the Greek Olympics.
Women were not aloud in the Olympics because the Olympics honered a male Greek god called Zeus, although women weren't aloud to compete in these Olympics they were aloud to compete in another which honored Zeus wife instead.
They were excluded, just as males were excluded from women's festivals.
no just men
yes, there can be a tie. in the Greek Olympics they would both be awarded.
durring 1990 aceit greek
Theywould send there daughters to report back for them !
zeus was man
No they weren't even allowed to watch
they could not take part because the men Greeks did not believe that women were strong enough. they thought that if women participated that it would bring very bad luck to all the Greeks. if a women entered the Olympics that they would be cursed never to win a single game for 4 years or longer. if a women tried to take part in the ancient Olympic she would be put in the dungeon for 7 years. Greek were very superstitious!
No, it was a male-only religious celebration to Zeus. Women had their own religious ceremonies.
It was a male festival in honour of the god Zeus. Women had their own religious festivals from which men were excluded.
they were mostly naked because they felt that clothing was an obstruction for proper body movement. Women were at that time partaking in the Olympics.
why did the greek Olympics stop why did the greek Olympics stop
Women were not equal to men. Greek women had a fair amount of freedom in their time, but they still were not equal.
Then the men would have no sandwiches to eat. Women can be in the Olympics, I don't know where the idea of a ban comes from.
Well, it depends on who there husbands were. Say you have a goddess with a very powerful husband. he wouldn't get mad because he could see her from Olympia, but a mortal husband would get very upset if she didn't go with him. Thus, she would get smitten.
Sat at home - they were forbidden to attend this Games which were a male-only celebration to the god Zeus. Women had their own separate religious celebrations.
The Greek Olympics were originated in 776 B.C., Olympia.
because only free, greek speaking men could compete. Also the men competed naked meaning that it would be inappropriate for women to be around named men. Women were also classed as second class citizens. poop.
