Women in byzantine empire played but a small part in professional life.For instance Moreover, it was not proper for a woman to sit at table with men, unless they were close relatives, such as her father, husband, or brothers. Most often she would eat in a separate room, just as she would spend her days in rooms apart from the menfolk. She learnt all about household matters from a very early age; her education, in contrast, was usually limited to reading and writing. Very few women acquired a wider learning.A girl could be married at 12 or 13 years of age. Her parents arranged the match, though theymight be assisted in making their choice of a husband by matchmakers, who received a portion of the dowry as their fee. A married woman's lot was not a bad one. Christian principles, which determined how Byzantine society was to function, assured her a decent existence. Irrespective of her social class, she was mistress of the house, and bearing children gave her additional standing.Those who belonged to the poorer levels of society laboured in the fields, or were employed in their family workshops. A few educated women were doctors who attended the female population. Others, the so-called 'koines' or prostitutes, lived in the cabarets and wine-shops.women in ancient Rome were citizens but could not vote or hold political office.[Because of their limited public role, women are named less frequently than men by Roman historians. But while Roman women held no direct political power, those from wealthy or powerful families could and did exert influence through private negotiations.‘’I always thought that my parents were continuously on my back but I was mistaken. They were not on my back, but they were watching my back. Thanks for your support mom and dad.’’
