Aristophanes, Women at the Thesmophoria
“Thesmophoriazusae” (literally meaning “The Women Celebrating the Festival of the Thesmophoria”, sometimes also called “The Poet and the Women”), is a comedy by the ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes, first staged in 411 BCE probably at the City Dionysia drama fastival. It is considered one of Aristophanes‘ most brilliant parodies of Athenian society and like “Lysistrata”, it focuses particularly on the subversive role of women in a male-dominated society. The general plot follows the summoning of the great Greek playwright Euripides by the women of Athens to account for the misogynistic portrayal of women in his plays.
