Women in Ancient Egyptian Wisdom Literature
This chapter presents a study of women in Ancient Egypt, and will concentrate on data provided by a discrete group of documents, known to modern scholars as Wisdom, or Didactic Literature, and to the Egyptians as Instructions. The chapter will deal only with the Pharaonic period (2900–332 BC), as changed attitudes towards women emerge with the Graeco-Roman period, as do new problems regarding the analysis of source material.
