The art produced in the male-dominated society of ancient Rome abounds in images of imperial wives, working women and female mythological characters such as the Amazons. This broad thematic survey of such representations from across the empire interprets them in the light of political, religious and cultural contexts to show how much they reflect an ideological stereotype of the Roman matron, and how they were used to convey moral and political messages to women.
