Sex, Murder, Power ~ The Badass Women of Antiquity

The CRAM Podcast ~ Extraordinary Ideas Unleashed

30-05-2024 • 43 mins

When we think of bad behaviour, we often think of men and the dirty deeds they’ve done.  But what about women?

Women, like men, are also capable of bad behaviour. Very bad behaviour.

Just look back at the Roman Empire. Women were expected to be good girls, wives and mothers.  But there were notable bad-ass women who stopped at nothing to gain power.

Their stories are shocking and gruesome.  They reveal what happens when power or control is taken away from women.  And what the drive for power can do.

Classics professor Alison Keith gives a fascinating and revealing exploration of human behaviour.
