Under this system, poor women were either enslaved or forced to work as prostitutes. This is interesting because I did not know they were deprived of civil rights. I thought it was a career choice but now I see, from your writing, that it was more of a permanent social standing with Roman society. They made lots of money off of these women and yet did not treat them with dignity. Thanks for sharing this story.
