I thought you used great examples of how women are being represented in broader roles. One thing I try to do when analyzing cultural material is avoid stating the cultures thoughts such as your example of women being subservient to men. In todays society that perspective would be used, unfortunately we don’t know if that’s how men and women viewed their status in the past. Men were typically at the forefront of conflicts protecting women and children. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that women preferred their status. We can recognize that women are being represented more through their art. Great ideas!
