Ancient Greece

Spanish

Once upon a time… another amazing discovery by our historian sisters: Ancient Greece, the western reference of modern and advanced society, the forerunner of currency, and where the philosophy was born, was a matriarchal society dominated by women. The famous “men philosophers” (Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Anaximenes, Democritus, Thales of Miletus, Zeno of Elea, Pythagoras, Parmenides, Empedocles, Diogenes, Anaxagoras, …) were actually female philosophers. Women, with a female reasoning infinitely superior to that of men, were able to revolutionize the whole world, with a way of thinking and in addition a knowledge of the Universe for all humanity.

The powers of observation, female intuition, the highly communicative and reflective capacities of Greek women made Greece a world power some 2,500 years ago. To know the facts well, we must go back to some 3,000 years ago. At that time the south of the Balkan Peninsula and all the Aegean islands were inhabited by deeply backward patriarchal communities and impoverished by civil conflicts and futile wars. Fortunately, the women decided to organize, unite and collaborate among themselves to copy the Egyptian matriarchal model, and they immediately took power, subdued the men and established a participatory matriarchy. In other words, all women, in addition to organizing and directing society, periodically presented their own ideas and reflections on the conception of the world and the Universe, as well as contributing fresh ideas about the different forms of government and their political evolution. The forced slavery of the men, who were forced to work the fields and perform all the hard and tiring tasks, under the orders of the women, of course, made it easier for females to have free time to observe nature, animal behavior and the development of the life and the world. This fact, in addition to the complicity generated among women, during the process of defeat of patriarchy and subjection of men, made possible an unparalleled development in feminine philosophical activity and made possible the exchange of ideas, reflections and metaphysical theories between middle aged women, mature women, girls, young girls and all other female persons. The female philosophy made history in Ancient Greece which is taken as a world reference for women philosophers from around the whole world.

The highest point of the Greek matriarchal domination was the construction of the Temple of the goddess Artemis (equivalent to our current goddess Venus) in the city of Ephesus (present-day Turkey). This goddess symbolized wisdom, light, life and feminine power through union and complicity between women. That is why it is represented by a female figure with dozens of feminine breasts glued to each other. Other matriarchal communities represented this goddess as a seated woman with an owl to her right hand as a symbol of wisdom. Greek women came to worship the goddess to enlighten them in their philosophical reasoning or to help them in their process of communion with nature and wisdom. Greek women worshiped goddess Artemis with games too, the predecessors of our Gynecocratic Games. Unfortunately a man, a misogynist resentful of female power and the matriarchal system, managed to set fire and partially destroy the sacred temple. Corrently know as Erostratus, he was arrested, imprisoned and severely punished for the rest of his days: he spent the rest of his worthless male life locked in a cage and carried from one island to another, community by community, city by city and town by town, so that all the women and girls who wanted to could abuse him, humiliate him, mistreat him and do with him what they wanted. No woman killed him, but all of them made him want death without respite or pause. In addition to calming the anger of the women, the punishment of Erostratus served to warn the men about the terrible consequences that would have to challenge the matriarchy and the power of women. All the women forced their slaves to walk slowly in front of the unfortunate man, so that they witnessed the ruthless abuse and punishment he was subjected to for daring to challenge female power. As regards the temple of Artemis, it was rebuilt in record time and immediately regained, even increased, its splendor. Splendor of a matriarchy that left a deep mark on history and that we still study today (especially its philosophical theories) with admiration and a certain healthy envy.

In daily life, the Greeks women wore simple and light clothes, in keeping with the hot climate of the southern Mediterranean. Among the middle classes, dresses made of linen, cotton or wool, such as the Chiton and the Peplus, which left the shoulders exposed, became very popular, while the sisters with social or political influence used to wear the Himation. Among the Spartan women, the use of the Strophion became popular, showing the right breast and leaving the thighs in view. Greek art was shown in everyday objects, especially in containers of water, oil or wine. In this way women could appreciate it in their day to day. In numerous vessels we find scenes of surrender and submission of male figures in front of women sitting and looking at their female faces in the mirror. With no doubt it is about the commemoration of the female victory over patriarchy and how Greek women began to become aware of their natural superiority and power over men. In addition to the vessels, Greek female artists filled the public space with marble statues, works of art that have survived to this day and that represent the female body as a symbol of absolute power. The goddess Artemis is very present in the cult temples with her exposed breasts, her braided hairstyle and her sure and imperishable look that endures through the centuries as a symbol of the omnipresent feminine power.
