埃及女性复杂的地位

埃及和大部分穆斯林国家一样,女性在文化上依旧被认为地位低于男人,但埃及女性在法律和经济上享有很大的独立性。

While they may have been publicly and socially viewed as inferior to men, Egyptian women enjoyed a great deal of legal and financial independence. They could buy and sell property, serve on juries, make wills and even enter into legal contracts. Unlike the women of ancient Greece, who were effectively owned by their husbands, Egyptian women also had the right to divorce and remarry. Egyptian couples were even known to negotiate an ancient prenuptial agreement. These contracts listed all the property and wealth the woman had brought into the marriage and guaranteed that she would be compensated for it in the event of a divorce.
尽管埃及女性可能被公认为低于男性,但她们在法律和经济上享有极大的独立性。她们可以买卖财产,担任陪审员,立遗嘱,甚至签订法律合同。古希腊的女性属于她们的丈夫,但埃及女性则不同,她们也有离婚和再婚的权利。广为人知的是,埃及夫妇甚至会商定一份旧式的婚前协议。这些协议列出了婚前女方带来的所有财产,并保证一旦离婚,女方将得到补偿。
