TV: The Ascent of Woman on BBC 2

There was a really interesting documentary on BBC 2 tonight called The Ascent of Woman. The first episode was about ancient civilisations, powerful women, goddesses and also the way in which the role of women varied between different cultures in the ancient world.

The description on the BBC website says:
Travelling from the Eurasian steppes to the sites of early civilisations, Dr Amanda Foreman explores how early civilisations dealt with the roles and status of women.
