This text aims to provide a broad introduction to issues in feminist theory for classicists, and at the same time, to provide feminists with an introduction to feminist work on antiquity. The interdisciplinary approach of this collection, interweaving aspects of feminist theory with material culture studies, feminist archaeology, and anthropology, provides a reminder that the ancient world included women, blacks and slaves as well as Homer and Cicero - Egypt and Africa as well as Greece and Rome. The collection challenges the traditional picture of the ancient world which asserts that feminist theories have no relevance to ancient societies. It demonstrates instead, that the ancient world was always multicultural and varied in race, class, sexual preference and gender.
