Bonus activity Winter Learning Journey

This is about the first ancient Olympics and why women were forbidden to compete and and even watch.

I think this was a cruel thing to do because women had every right to compete in the Olympics.
From my perspective men had a reason but I dont think that reason was at all good enough.
Thankfully women now are allowed to compete but it wasn't fair back then and thats disappointing ,
but after all that we are all happy about the Olympics now and thats all that matters.

  1. Hi Cameo,

    I couldn't agree with you more! The modern day Olympic Games invite both men and women to participate and, in my opinion, that is the most fair and equitable way to go. The ancient games were held at a time when men and women did not have equal status in society and the rule reflected the culture of the time. Thank goodness we now live at a time when both genders are equally respected and recognised!

    Cheers, Rachel
