Women in Ancient Egypt

  • Women and men in ancient Egypt enjoyed the same legal and economic rights. Women could divorce their husbands and remarry.
  • Women and men were also subject to the same punishments.
  • Women worked many of the same jobs men did, most in the fields. Life was tough, though women did live longer than men (58, 54)
  • Women could hold political office, with several examples of female pharaohs available. There were at least 5, not including the Cleopatras and other Greek rulers.
  • Women could also hold lower political office, with many being scribes.
  • Women who were on their periods were considered to be removing impurities. They were excused from work and forbidden from some religious areas.
  • It is worth noting that when Egypt was conquered by Greece, Egyptian women retained many more rights than their Greek counterparts.

Now on your restaurant bill: Obamacare fee

I’m fine with this. If it means said place is complying with the ACA instead of trying to get around it by kicking their employees on to the exchanges via cutting hours to part-time, great. Here’s two dimes.

Twenty cents for a bill of over $20. So that employees get health insurance. This is a fucking ADVERTISEMENT for Obamacare.

^^^
No lie. 

You’re willing to pay 2.50 for an iced tea and 6.50 for a hot dog and yet you bitch about .20 going to give employees health coverage? Get outta my face.

^^^^priorities

Fucking THIS. Human decency. It’s a thing.
