Excerpt from Female Biography: Containing Notices of Distinguished Women, in Different Nations and Ages
The Athenians borrowed their laws and customs from the East, but they were softened and tamed by a spirit of philosophy, which was early cultivated by, that extraordinary people. They undertook to regulate their domestic affairs by the inﬂuence of public opinion, rather than by laws; their women were owed to go abroad, while they were advised to stay at home. At Sparta, the bold doctrine of abolishing all seclusion was avowed, and their physical and mental instruction was similar to that of the males. The latter system was a bad one, for it took away that refinement which makes up no inconsiderable portion of female inﬂuence.
