Ok so here are the rules of the debate.
1. No bad words or offensive language.
2. Base your arguments on facts not opinions.
3. If your offended by cruel things from the past, don't join the debate.
4. Each round will be a different topic, both me and the contender will chose 2 topics. I will chose round one, my contender round 2, me round three, and my contender round four.
Violation of these rules = automatic forfeiture from the debate.
First topic: Woman

Here's my argument
Spartan Woman were treated so much better than Athenian woman.
First, they can choose who and when they marry. They can even leave their husband. In Athens, woman were assigned husbands and were usually married at the young age of 15.
Second, in Athens, woman were not allowed to leave their husband's house alone or talk to their husband's friends without permission. In Sparta, woman could talk to whomever they wanted to and leave their house whenever they wanted.
Third, Athenian woman were not allowed to own property. When they were married, they moved into their husbands house. In Sparta, woman were allowed to have their own property. They could have money, land, possessions and a house.
Fourth, Spartan girls got to go to school and learn basically the same skills as the boys. In Athens, only boys got the privilege of education. The girls would have to stay home and clean with their mother.
Last, Spartan girls learned how to defend their city state would their ever be an invasion. Athenian girls did not.
