Egyptian women

Egyptian women were weavers and grinders of grain. However, a few women were listed as overseers and “sealers” of storehouses, writes Elizabeth Wayland Barber in her book Women’s Work—The First 20,000 Years.

One woman was a gardener. Women also worked as housekeepers, nurses, hairdressers, cosmeticians and just plain servants. A few women were “priestesses of some sort.”
