Women pervade poetry, noted Virginia Woolf in A Room of One’s Own, but are “all but absent from history.” Yet of course, women have always been part of history. From Vestal Virgins to business owners, on the front lines of the empire and in its palaces, women were as much a part of Roman society as men. Presented in celebration of International Women’s Day, Roman historian Emma Southon explores the lesser-known stories of a few women from a vast empire. Each story presents a unique perspective, revealing changes in women’s lives across time and class lines.

Emma Southon is a Roman historian. Her most recent book is A Rome of One’s Own: Rome’s Forgotten Women. She is the author of three other books on Roman history and the co-host of the history/comedy podcast History is Sexy. She lives in Belfast, Northern Ireland, with her husband and their cat, Livia.
