Did you Know?
The men of ancient Greece had fun by attending sporting places, (like a gym) talk to friends, and go to drinking parties. The women were pretty much stuck to the home but they did go to religious festivals that had entertainment such as plays and observances of athletics. The women cannot go with the men into the party unless they act as dancing performeres.
