I came to Belgrade in late spring of It was hot enough for Belgrade girls not to cover what they believed was not meant to be covered. While I observed more than just the landscape I had dynamic internal monologues.
Now she sells herself every night, but sometimes she hovers just beyond the streetlamp so that motorists may whizz by without noticing her. Six months on Via Salaria, a motorway just north of Rome, has sharpened her memory of walking with her boyfriend to the outskirts of Tirana, the Albanian capital, to meet a contact. Their future had arrived, he told her. It was a posh house with a long drive and inside groups of men were waiting for her and a dozen other girls. The wooden block was the size of a railway sleeper, too low to make her visible to the whole room but enough to give a sense of occasion.
Gorgo, Queen of Sparta and wife of Leonidas , as quoted by Plutarch . Spartan women were famous in ancient Greece for having more freedom than elsewhere in the Greek world. To contemporaries outside of Sparta, Spartan women had a reputation for promiscuity and controlling their husbands. Unlike their Athenian counterparts, Spartan women could legally own and inherit property and they were usually better educated. The extant written sources are limited and from a largely non-Spartan viewpoint. As Anton Powell puts it, to say that the written sources are "'not without problems' Sparta is one of only three states in ancient Greece, along with Athens and Gortyn , for which any detailed information about the role of women survives. The earliest sources of evidence about the lives of Spartan women come from archaic Greek poetry, such as the partheneia "maiden songs" of Alcman , a Lydian poet who lived and worked in Sparta in the seventh century BC. According to Plutarch 's testimony, Spartans practiced infanticide as a matter of course if children were thought to be unhealthy. Information about the education of Spartan women is hard to find as there are more surviving sources about the education of Spartan boys.

In my home ward, the non-member son of one of the members of the Bishopbric was able to stand up with the Priesthood and hold his baby girl while they gave her baby blessing. He was not a prominent man in the church.
