Women in Ancient Egypt, A Sourcebook, will appear in the “Writings from the Ancient World” series published by the Society of Biblical Literature. It is a collection of translations of ancient Egyptian texts written by, for, or about women; it is aimed at the general interested public and will require no special training in ancient studies. It will have sections on women and marriage, the family, the economy, law, religion (including music), and health. It will end with a short discussion of the question of female literacy.
